Among the seven Army combat brigades and one division headquarters units that would be sent to Iraq later this year the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, from Fort Wainwright, Alaska.
The deployments announced Monday would maintain a level of 15 brigades in Iraq, or roughly 140,000 troops - the number that military leaders expect will remain on the warfront at the end of July, once the currently planned withdrawals are finished.
Under the new Pentagon policy effective in August, those Army units will serve for 12 months, rather than the 15-month tours that units in Iraq now are serving.
