On Feb. 18, the Department of Defense approved the planned relocation of the 11th Signal Brigade Headquarters from Fort Huachuca to Fort Hood, Texas.
This relocation action is not associated with Base Realignment and Closure 2005 directed actions and involves slightly more than 100 active duty personnel.
The completion of the relocation is tentatively scheduled to take place by July 2013 but the actual movement date is being worked and could take place by summer 2014.
This force structure action will locate the 11th Signal Brigade Headquarters with their higher headquarters III Corps at Fort Hood. The 11th Signal Brigade has been aligned with III Corps since Oct. 16, 2009.
The 11th Signal Brigade Headquarters executes mission command of signal battalions and provides network operations for communications networks, information systems, and information assurance/computer network defense for operational forces worldwide.
