FORT HOOD — A First Army Division West aviation training brigade inactivated Wednesday morning, part of a broader plan to reshape the division as fewer Guard and Reserve units are deploying to Iraq and Afghanistan.

During a ceremony in front of the division’s headquarters, soldiers with the 166th Aviation Brigade, which came to Fort Hood with First Army Division West in 2009, cased the brigade’s colors, symbolically inactivating the unit.
