Currently garrisoned at Fort Knox, the 4th Cavalry Brigade was originally constituted and activated in the summer of 1942 at Camp Hood, Texas and took part in five campaigns in the European Theater as the 4th Tank Destroyer Group before it was inactivated immediately following the end of the war (October 1946).

Disbanded in 1952, the Brigade was not revived until forty-five years had elapsed; after receiving its new designation, it spent two years as a training unit before it was again inactivated in October 1999. On 1 December 2006, it was again activated, this time at its home base of Fort Knox, and is currently responsible for training Army Reserve and National Guard unit based east of the Mississippi river. The 4th Cavalry Brigade’s commitment to is motto of “Train For Combat” was rewarded with an Army Superior Unit Award in 2012.

The 4th Cavalry Brigade Distinctive Unit Insignia was approved on 25 February 1998. A red flame in the lamp of knowledge connotes courage and sacrifices, while the insignia’s gold appointments stand excellence of achievement. A five-pointed star constructed in and above and insignia stands for the campaign participation credits the Brigade earned during World War II.
