By DoD News, Defense Media Activity announced force structure decisions and station ing plans for the reduction of the regular Army from 490,000 to 450,000 Soldiers. The reduc tion of force structure will occur in FY 2016 and 2017. The end-strength reduction of 40,000 will be completed by the end of FY 2018, and will be accompanied by the reduction of 17,000 Army civilian employees adding that the cuts will affect nearly every Army installation in the United States and overseas. As part of these reductions, the number of regular Army brigade combat teams, the basic deployable units of maneuver in the Army, will continue to decline from a wartime high of 45 to 30 by the end of FY 2017. The Army will convert the 3rd Infantry Divi sions 3rd Brigade Combat Team and the 25th Infantry Divisions 4th Airborne Brigade Combat Team into smaller units -maneuver battalion task forces -by the end of FY 2017. Brigade combat teams consist of about 4,000 Soldiers; the battalion task forces will have about 1,050 Soldiers. The 25th Infantry Divisions 2nd Brigade Combat Team will remain a brigade combat team, but will convert its primary maneuver platform. Cur rently a Stryker brigade combat team, it will become an infantry brigade combat team without Stryker combat vehicles. Budget constraints are forcing the Armys reduction, said Lt. Gen. Joseph Anderson, the Armys deputy chief of staff for operations and plans.
