FORT BRAGG, N.C. (July 28, 2011) - The flags of the 50 United States and six territories (U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Guam, District of Columbia, Northern Marianas and American Samoa) were raised today for the first time in front of the new Army Forces Command and U.S. Army Reserve Command combined headquarters complex here.

FORSCOM is the Army’s largest command and the generating force provider for combatant commanders worldwide. USARC is the nation’s premier provider of Citizen-Soldiers for planned and emerging missions at home and abroad.

Both units moved to Fort Bragg to comply with the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure legislation. BRAC directed their relocation here and the closure of their former home at Fort McPherson, Ga., not later than Sept. 15, 2011.
