    The Spartan Brigade comes to an end, with the promise of a new beginning

    Col. Scott Jackson, commander, 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team “Spartans,” 3rd Infantry Division, salutes during the Spartan Brigade's inactivation ceremony held here Jan. 15. The 2nd ABCT was chosen to be one of the many brigades that would be inactivated throughout the Army in order to meet the nation’s call to downsize. Behind him are the commands of the remaining battalions within the 2nd ABCT, which also inactivated during the ceremony. Those battalions are: The 3rd Squadron, 7th Cavalry Regiment “Garryowen”; the 1st Battalion, 9th Field Artillery Regiment “Battlekings”; the 2-3 Brigade Special Troops Battalion “Titans”; and the 26th Brigade Support Battalion “Challengers.” While the 2nd ABCT in its current heavy configuration is going away, the 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 3rd ID, is slated to reflag as 2nd IBCT “Spartans” in the summer of this year and to carry on the Spartan legacy of excellence.
