1-54th Security Forces Assistance Brigade

Card image

The Security Force Assistance Brigades were designed as the first permanent units in the U.S. Army to solely dedicate its mission to advising & assisting partner nations in developing their security force capability. The implementation of the SFAB reduces the demand for existing BCTs to conduct security force assistance operations, allowing the BCTs to focus on preparation for full-spectrum operations. Soldiers & leaders in SFABs will train, advise, assist, accompany & enable allied & partner security forces worldwide by strengthening the host government’s ability to defend itself from internal & external threats. The individuals selected for SFAB assignment will be the best within their fields.
