On 1 December 2006, the 72nd Field Artillery Brigade was reactivated as a subordinate unit to First Army Division East, ending a fourteen-year inactivation period that stretched back to 1992, As a training Brigade, the unit is responsible for enabling, planning, and coordinating training for Army Reserve, Army National Guard, and other U.S. military units--always "On Time On Target."

Since the Brigade has assumed this mission, its work has been honored with two Army Superior Unit Awards. The first came in 2014 for service rendered between 1 December 2006 and 31 August 2007, the second in 2017 for a three-plus-year deployment from 1 June 2008 to 20 September 2011.

The 72nd Field Artillery Brigade Distinctive Unit Insignia, or unit crest, was approved on 16 August 1968 while the unit was still the 72nd Artillery Group and has been appropriately redesignated since then. Scarlet and yellow are the predominant colors here because they are Field Artillery colors. Ramrods and cannon denote the mission of Field Artillery, and the trio of gunstones and flames are a reference to the three campaign streamers earned in World War I and World War II.
