The 1st Brigade Combat Team of the 3rd Infantry, which was first into Baghdad, Iraq, in 2003, started its controversial assignment Wednesday.The First Raiders will spend 2009 as the first active-duty military unit attached to the U.S. Northern Command since it was created. They will be based in Fort Stewart, Georgia, and focus primarily on logistics and support for local police and rescue personnel, the Army says.
According to Northern Command’s Web site, the CBRNE Consequence Management Response Force is a team that will ultimately number about 4,700 personnel from the different military branches that would deploy as the Department of Defense’s initial response force.
Its capabilities include search and rescue, decontamination, medical, aviation, communications and logistical support. Each CCMRF will be composed of three functional task forces — Task Force Operations, Task Force Medical and Task Force Aviation — that have individual operational focus and mission skills, the Web site says.

Defense Department officials are monitoring the H1N1 outbreak closely, with their primary focus on protecting the military population, a senior Pentagon official said April 27.
The Pentagon is organizing a task force that would help with transportation, logistics and distributing medical supplies in the event of a pandemic, a news report said.
President Barack Obama told the National Academy of Sciences the emerging incidence of H1N1 in the United States "is obviously a cause for concern and requires a heightened state of alert, but it's not a cause for alarm."
