39th Brigade Combat Team Deploys To Kuwait From AIA, LA.

Distinctive Unit Insignia


The origins of the 39th Infantry Brigade begin when its predecessor unit, the 39th Infantry Division came into being on 18 July 1917, when the number "39" was allocated to National Guardsmen from Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. On 03 August 1917 the unit was organized for training at Camp Beauregard,

Although the 1st Cavalry Division was organized soon after the end of World War I, the paths of the two units did not cross until 23 July 2003, when the Department of Defense announced that during the period of January to May 2004, the 123,000 troops troops currently assigned to Operation IRAQI FREEDOM, would undergo an orderly rotation. The mission of the 1st Cavalry Division became a reality by becomming part of this rotation along with the 39th Enhanced Separate Infantry Brigade from the Arkansas Army National Guard (ARARNG), currently under control of the 7th Infantry Division of Ft. Carson, CO.

Beginning on 28 October, the main body of the 39th Infantry Brigade began departing from its 47 respective locations across the state. Heading out a battalion a day, the 3000 Arkansas Guardsmen linked up with the 1st Cavalry Division at Ft. Hood, TX. to train with the First Team in preparation for deployment. Following completion of deployment training and orientation, they moved out to the Joint Readiness Training Center at Ft. Polk, LA to finish their training cycle before deployment to the CENTCOM area where they will be formally attached to the Division in Iraq.

On 13 January 2004, the 2nd (BlackJack) Brigade Combat Team (BCT), the lead element of the 1st Cavalry Division, deployed for its one-year tour to Iraq. Soon afterwards, on 28 February, units of the 39th Infantry Brigade, who had been training at the Joint Readiness Training Center at Ft. Polk, LA., cased their colors and prepared for departure to Iraq. Later in the day, the first group of 250 soldiers left by a chartered commercial plane from Alexandria International Airport, LA. Traveling through nine time zones, they arrived in the Central Command theater of operations at Kuwait. Then, after Reception, Staging, On-ward movement, Integration (RSOI) and extensive desert exercises, lasting about a month, they deployed to Baghdad, Iraq to meet up with other units of the 1st Cavalry Division.
