Welcome to the Army's best Stryker Brigade Combat Team (SBCT)
1st Brigade, 25th Infantry Division and Fort Wainwright, Alaska. We are truly looking forward to your arrival and becoming a member of one of the Army's most up-to-date and elite fighting forces.
A SBCT is an infantry centric organization, which provides the Army with a lethal, deployable, survivable, and mobile option formed around the ten variants of our trademark Stryker vehicle. The Stryker Brigade fills the operational gaps between the Army's light forces and the heavy forces still fielded with Abrams tanks and Bradley Fighting Vehicles, and is a key component of Army transformation.
We are positive that you will find Fort Wainwright, located in beautiful Fairbanks, Alaska, both a terrific place to live and serve. Fairbanks is the gateway to your true Alaskan adventure.
Your assignment to the Army's farthest North and only Arctic Stryker Brigade Combat Team provides an opportunity to be on the cutting edge of Army operations, grow in your profession, and to enjoy all the great things that the Brigade and Fort Wainwright have to offer to today's Soldiers and their families.
