The 26th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade ("Yankee"[1]) is a combat support brigade of the United States Army. Its headquarters is maintained by the Massachusetts Army National Guard. It draws its lineage from the Headquarters Company 26th Infantry Division.

However, most of the history of the current 26th MEB stems from the 26th Infantry Division. The 26th Division served in World Wars I and II and was recreated in the Massachusetts Army National Guard after being released from active duty on 13 November 1946.



The Brigade consists of a Headquarters and Headquarters Company and a Network Signal Company.
