Modular 4th Infantry Division Trains for Future

The transformation of the new modular 4th Infantry Division carries through and adopts the Army strategic vision for the future. The dramatic restructure of the division reflects the paramount efforts towards this vision. The old division-based Army from the Cold-War era is now brigade-based. The old legacy divisions were each unique in their designs and capabilities, but the units now mirror one another in their designs and capabilities. The 4th Infantry Division is training and preparing soldiers to meet this new mission with new skills and capabilities.
