As of 2015, get information about U.S. Army deployment schedules from Stars and Stripes or the Army Times. Check either of these news sources for information concerning upcoming military exercises, and changes to global bases that affect deployment decisions.
U.S. Army deployment schedules reflect responses to threats and shifts in U.S. foreign policy. For instance, 450 soldiers from Fort Hood, Texas deployed to Kuwait in 2015 to support Operation Inherent Resolve, aimed at combating Islamic State forces. Also in 2015, the 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team in Korea was replaced for the first time in 50 years by a rotational brigade combat team from Fort Hood. The Army rotates entire units rather than individual soldiers because it results in better training and readiness.
