The Texas Army National Guard is shutting the doors on some of its facilities, and the Lufkin unit is one of the sites that will close.

Lufkin isn’t alone.  It’s part of a restructuring of the National Guard, and other Southeast Texas cities will also have National Guard units dissolved.  

The 72nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team or the “Ready Team” as it’s known, will scale back and shut down locations in Lufkin, Bryan, LaMarque, Houston, Huntsville, Rosenberg, and Taylor, according to a news release.

KTRE reports the closure means that the East Texas soldiers assigned to that unit will be re-assigned or transferred to other units.  More than four thousand soldiers may be deactivated or moved.
