Description:
The 4th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division "Raiders" activated at Fort Lewis, Washington on 1 June 2006 after forming as the Army’s Fourth Stryker Brigade sixteen months earlier. It is the fourth of the Army's six planned Active Component Stryker brigade combat teams (brigades built around eight-wheeled Stryker combat vehicles). The unit was originally formed at Fort Lewis in 2005 as the 2nd Cavalry Regiment (Stryker), when the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment (Light) shifted to that post from Fort Polk, Louisiana, after a 15 month deployment in Iraq. When, in June 2006, the 2nd Cavalry Regiment (Stryker)'s colors were cased (to be uncased in Vilseck, Germany, along with a new batch of personnel from Fort Lewis's former 1st SBCT, 25th ID), its personnel became the 4th SBCT, 2nd ID. The 4th Stryker Brigade has the distinction of being the last U.S. Army Combat Brigade to serve in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

The 4th SBCT, 2nd ID, comprises the following elements:headquarters and headquarters company (HHC), an engineer company, an anti-tank company, a military intelligence company, a signal company, a logistics and support battalion, a field artillery battalion, three infantry battalions, and a cavalry or RSTA (reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition) squadron.
