Army force structure, stationing decision will result in minor decrease in FH personnel

The force reductions announced by the Department of the Army Tuesday will result in a minor decrease of approximately 31 permanent party personnel spaces by 2017 at Fort Huachuca. This number takes into account the relocation of the 11th Tactical Theater Signal Brigade Headquarters.

Fort officials do not have exact numbers at this time, but expect minimal impact on the training throughput. While the number of brigade combat teams will drop to 33, the reorganization associated with the reduction maintains basic combat power and should retain a similar amount of associated combat enablers who train at Fort Huachuca.

The Department of the Army announced force structure and stationing decisions associated with the active component end-strength reduction of 80,000 Soldiers, resulting in an Army end-strength of 490,000 by 2017. This is a 14 percent reduction across the active component force. These reductions are consistent with fiscal constraints resulting from the Budget Control Act of 2011 and defense planning guidance issued in 2012, but do not reflect additional reductions that will be required if sequestration-driven funding reductions remain unmitigated.

With this force structure, the Army retains its adaptability and flexibility to provide regionally aligned and mission-tailored forces in support of national defense requirements.

The Department of the Army held a community outreach session here in April to gather community-unique considerations to support the Army making the best decisions to realign its force structure.
