|3 They?re Back
The Army Reserve?s 455th Chemical Brigade, born in World War II as the 100th Chemical Battalion, has been reactivated as part of the 76th Operational Response Command. The new commander, Col. Yvette Rose, said the 455th is the only chemical brigade to have seen combat as a result of its deployment during the global war on terror. It will have three battalions, 12 companies, two Army Reserve elements and 2,000 soldiers assigned.
What to Watch: Rose said she expects great things from the brigade. ?This is the fifth time in history the unit has been activated, and that can only mean we?re really awesome, and we are critically important to America?s mission.?
