46th Infantry Brigade (Mechanized)
The 46th Infantry Brigade is the command and control headquarters for many of Michigan's combat arms units. The Brigade is part of the 38th Infantry Division, which has its headquarters in Indiana.
The headquarters staff ensures subordinate units: have the personnel and equipment to perform assigned missions; conduct training and maintenance to ensure the unit is ready at all times the nation or state need to call on it; and oversee the performance of missions by units assigned to it in the event the Brigade is called to active duty.
The creation of "mobile light brigades" would follow the elimination in 2005 of Michigan's 46th Infantry Brigade, parent of most of the state's Guard units, including Port Huron's Battery A. The brigade's units would be dispersed into brigades from Ohio and Vermont. Brigades are made up of 3,000 to 5,000 soldiers.
