1st Infantry Division

The 1st Infantry Division (Mechanized) conducted a transfer of authority with the 24th Infantry Division on 1 August 2006, assuming command and control of Fort Riley. This represented its return to the United States after a decade stationed in Germany. The 24th Infantry Division was subsequently inactivated, and many of its units reflagged as units of the 1st Infantry Division. Also in 2006, the 1st Infantry Division began the transformation to the US Army's new modular force structure, gaining an additional maneuver brigade, as well as experiencing a reorganization of its support and aviation assets. As of 2009, the Division consisted of 4 maneuver brigade, a Combat Aviation Brigade, the 1st Sustainment Brigade, and the 1st Infantry Division Band. Many of the previous division level assets were incorporated into the special troops battalions and brigade support battalions of the modular brigades.
