FORT HOOD — The commander of U.S. Army Forces Command, Gen. Michael Garrett, joined leadership from across Fort Hood and others Tuesday to formally activate the 3rd Security Force Assistance Brigade as an official Army unit during a ceremony at Fort Hood’s Abrams Physical Fitness Center.

The Army has authorized a total of six Security Force Assistance Brigades, or SFABs. Five are active duty and one in the Army National Guard, according to 3rd SFAB spokesman Maj. Jefferson Grimes. Fort Hood’s SFAB is the third to be activated, the two other active duty brigades are in the process of building, and the National Guard brigade has yet to be determined to have a location. | 254-501-7554
