Interesting. I am not very knowledgable in the Army realms, so I do not know the political aspect of all of this, but you can't really argue against more training. Training makes our military better at what they do. Let's see what happens.

PO1 (Join to see) you nailed it, basically more firepower for the Washington National Guard's newly minted 81st Stryker Brigade Combat Team.

That is interesting SFC Joe S. Davis Jr., MSM, DSL that the 81st Stryker Brigade Combat Team which is headquartered in Washington state and has units in Oregon and California is wearing the iconic 2nd ID Indian head patch since it seems to be aligned with the 7th ID.
I can see why the 1176th Transportation Company put on the patch of the famed 101st Airborne Division as they prepared to partner with the 101st Sustainment Brigade since they are aligned.
I hope that the Texas army National Guard's 1st Battalion, 143rd Infantry Regiment is airborne qualified because they put on the patch of the 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team which is an active Army unit in Vicenza, Italy which is a critical unit in SETAF (Southern European Task Force).

This will only be effective if these National Guard Brigades are kept at a high readiness level.
Back in the Cold War the Army had National Guard "Round Out Brigades" assigned as the 3rd Brigade to active duty divisions. The Georgia 48th Infantry Brigade was the round out brigade for the 24th Infantry Division at Fort Stewart. The 155th Armored Brigade was the round out brigade for the 1st Cavalry Division at Fort Hood. When Desert Shield kicked off these brigade were ordered to readiness, but failed in the Army's eyes to be ready to deploy. Granted that was a long time ago, and maybe the Army has learned a few things since then. I hope so.
