The 230th Sustainment Brigade ("Volunteers"[1]) is a sustainment brigade of the Tennessee Army National Guard.[2]

The Brigade formed in 2005, and gradually over three years assumed the responsibility of the disbanding long-time TN ARNG 196th Field Artillery Brigade based in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In July 2008 the 196th Field Artillery Brigade cased its colors, and it formally disbanded in September 2008.[3]

The 1st Battalion, 181st Field Artillery, located at the Chattanooga Armory, was transferred from the 196th FA Brigade to the 230th Sustainment Brigade. The Brigade also includes the 176th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion based at Johnson City, which has participated in Joint Task Force East rotations in Romania and Bulgaria. The other subordinate battalion within the Brigade is the 30th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion.

In 2011 HHC 230th Sustainment Brigade deployed to Kuwait where it assisted with the drawdown from Iraq.[4]
