111th Sustainment Brigade (United States)

The 111th Sustainment Brigade started out as the 111th Air Defense Artillery Brigade of the United States Army. On 1 February 2008, this New Mexico National Guard Army unit ceased its air defense mission and was reorganized and redesignated as a maneuver enhancement brigade. Similar to a special troops battalion, its mission was to support units of the Regular Army. On the 1st of September 2016, the brigade was redesignated, once again, as a sustainment brigade that focuses on providing mission command for combat support and combat service support units. The brigade is designed to operate independently in a theater of operations, in conjunction with other sustainment brigades under the command of a sustainment command (expeditionary), or directly under a theater sustainment command.[1][2]
