The 218th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade Headquarters and Headquarters Company was relocated to Charleston, South Carolina in 2009 as Army National Guard under state control. It was ordered into Federal service on 12 July 2012, and in September nearly 400 of its members were deployed to Kosovo as part of a peacekeeping force known Kosovo Force 16, or KFOR16, headed by its Chief of Staff Lt. Col. Rob Stillwell. After a successful deployment, the 218th handed command of the Multinational Battle Group-East to the 525th Battlefield Surveillance Brigade.
Another notable achievement for the Brigade, whose motto is “Steadfast of Purpose,” was the smooth and efficient operations it helped coordinate as the command and control center of the Southern Conglomerate of South Carolina during storms associated with Hurricane Irma in September 2017. It provided high-water rescue vehicles as needed by the Emergency Operations Center, whose requests were processed a Joint Operations Center in Columbia. At one point, the Brigade was called upon to transport nearly 40 nurses in flooded downtown Charleston in order to deliver them to Roper Hospital where they were badly needed, an essential mission carried out perfectly.
