The U.S. Army says the 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, “Devil Brigade,” 1st Infantry Division has officially assumed command in Żagań, Poland. It said the transfer of power with the 1st Cavalry Division was made official on Aug. 13 with a transfer of authority ceremony.

“As a Soldier, there are two units closest to my heart in the Army,” said Col. Jon Meredith, commander of 1ABCT, 1CD. “The 1st Cavalry Division is the Army Strong knockout right hook. The 1st Infantry Division is its soul, and the heart of the Big Red One is the Devil Brigade.

In January of 2019, the Army said the Devil Brigade deployed to Europe for nine months. The team is now operational back in Europe in support of Atlantic Resolve, a set of bilateral, joint and multinational training exercises meant to build readiness, increase interoperability and enhance the bond between allies and partner militaries.
