Talk:2nd Infantry Division (United States)

5th Stryker Brigade
The lead section reads: "On 17 February 2009, President Barack Obama ordered 4,000 soldiers of the 5th Stryker Brigade Combat Team from Ft. Lewis, Washington to Afghanistan." But it is not clear to me what this has to do with the 2nd infantry division. Can someone who understands this subject better, please clarify. Thanks -ErinHowarth (talk) 08:04, 12 November 2012 (UTC)
The 5th BCT was, at the time, part of the 2nd Inf Div. Further down on the page it reads: "In July 2010, the 5th Stryker Brigade Combat Team was inactivated and reflagged as the 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team." It's actually just the 2d BCT - the Stryker is a piece of equipment currently in use, but the designation of the unit is not dependent upon the presence of this vehicle in the inventory. The official designation of the 2d BCT, 2nd Inf Div (sans "Styker") is found at the website of the US Army Center of Military History:
The term is used three times in the article, and only once to explain the role of the division. I think this needs to be elaborated on. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 23:38, 8 April 2015 (UTC)
