The Department of the Army announced Friday that the stationing of the new 4th Security Force Assistance Brigade will be at Fort Carson.

According to the Army, Security Force Assistance Brigades (SFAB) are specialized units whose core mission is to conduct, advise, and assist operations with allied and partner nations.

“We are excited and proud to bring the new 4th SFAB here to Fort Carson,” Maj. Gen. Randy A. George, 4th Inf. Div. and Fort Carson commanding general, said. “It just makes sense when you consider Fort Carson’s premier training range areas, excellent high-altitude location and extremely supportive community.”

The Army said SFAB soldiers are screened based on qualifications and experience, and are among the most highly trained tactical leaders in the Army. SFAB soldiers receive training through the Military Adviser Training Academy that includes language, foreign weapons, and the Joint Fires Observer course.
