Joint Base Lewis-McChord announcement.
The Department of the Army announced today the upcoming fall rotational deployment of the 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division, to Korea.
The 2nd SBCT, stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington and assigned to 7th Infantry Division, will replace the 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division, as part of a regular rotation of forces to support the United States’ commitment to the Republic of Korea.
“The Lancer Brigade is proud to be selected as the first Stryker Brigade Combat Team to deploy to the Republic of Korea as a Korea Rotational Force,” said Col. Chad M. Roehrman, commander of 2-2 SBCT. “By design, we are equipped to rapidly deploy around the globe to fight and win in key or restrictive terrain – hills, mountains, valleys and urban environments alongside our partner nations. Following the decision to change KRF from armored brigades to Stryker brigades, we are fully prepared to assume the mission from 1st ABCT, 1st Armored Division, in support of the ironclad commitment to the alliance.”
