Hawaii Gains 165 Soldiers in Army-wide Reorganization
Posted June 25th, 2013 @ 2:52pm

Hawaii will gain about 165 soldiers under an Army-wide reorganization that will cut the force from 570,000 soldiers in 2010 to 490,000 by the end of 2017. That's a 14 percent reduction across the Army. Army brigades of about 3,500 soldiers each will inactivate in Texas, North Carolina, Kentucky, Colorado, New York, Kansas, Georgia and Washington state. Some states may see a reduction of two brigades. In addition, two brigades in Germany also will be inactivated this year. Schofield Barracks is expected to receive about 110 more soldiers as a result of the reorganization. Fort Shafter would get about 55 more soldiers.
