Iraq 2nd Stryker Combat Team: 2nd Stryker Renamed Advise Assist

As ALL combat brigades left Iraq and moved into Kuwait this week, the 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team of the 25th Infantry Division stays in Iraq - with a newly named Brigade - now known as the Advise and Assist Brigade. Their mission: to conduct security force assistance.

There are seven Advise and Assist Brigades still in Iraq, along with two National Guard Infantry birgades "for security." It all depends on what the meaning of is "Combat Team" is.
