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 inactivating 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 inactivated in September 2008.[3]

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. The 30th CSSB consisted of the following:
