BAND OF BROTHERS-INACTIVATED
Piece of 'Band of Brothers' unit gets new commander, reassignment as military downsizes

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, April 23, 2014 3:03 PM EDT
FORT CAMPBELL, Ky.


The original "Band Of Brothers" is getting a new commander and a new home.

The 1st Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment will undergo a change of command ceremony at Fort Campbell on Wednesday. And, at the end of the week, the regiment will move from the 4th Brigade Combat Team to the 3rd Brigade Combat Team. The move is being made as the Army shrinks its overall size as wars in Iraq and Afghanistan wrap up.

The 4th Brigade, which is part of the 101st Airborne Division, became famous in a book by historian Stephen Ambrose and a subsequent HBO miniseries produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks.

It will be inactivated on Friday.

The 1st Battalion was recognized for its role during the Battle of Hamburger Hill in May 1969.
