U.S. Army's 4th Infantry Division Goes 'Modular'

FORT HOOD, Texas, Dec. 16, 2004 – The 4th Infantry Division formally moved into a new era of organization and effectiveness when it officially became the Army's newest “modular” division.

The transformation of the 4th Infantry Division from a “legacy” division to a “modular” configuration is in tune with the dramatic changes being felt throughout the Army as it carries through and adopts its strategic vision for the future.

"We will tailor our units under modularity to transition and transform the force from a divisional-based army to a brigade-based Army. We are literally pushing down assets to make brigades more autonomous," said Maj. Gen. J. D. Thurman, commanding general, 4th Infantry Division. | More |
