The Vanguard Brigade is expected to depart their home station in February for a nine-month deployment as part of the International Security and Assistance Force under the command of Regional Command – East.

The team of approximately 2,200 soldiers has been training for this mission since July, including a month-long mission readiness exercise at the Joint Readiness Training Center at Fort Polk, La., in November.
