The second Security Force Assistance Brigade will stand up at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, the Army announced on Friday.
Fort Bragg was chosen based on “strategic considerations,” including projected time to activate and train an SFAB, the presence of senior grade personnel to man the unit, and required facility costs, according to an Army news release.
Fort Bragg is one of the Army’s busiest and largest installations, and it is already home to organizations such as the XVIII Airborne Corps, the 82nd Airborne Division, Army Forces Command and Army Special Operations Command.
The first of six planned SFABs activated in October at Fort Benning, Georgia. The brigades are the Army’s first permanent units that will conduct security cooperation activities and allow quick response to combatant commander requirements.
