The Army’s six security force assistance brigades have been built and will soon be aligned with geographic combatant commands around the world, according to Brig. Gen. Scott Jackson, commander of the Security Force Assistance Command.

The security force assistance brigades, specialized units designed for advise-and-assist missions with U.S. allies and partners, also will deploy in the future in smaller elements that will maintain a sustained, forward presence.
