FORT DRUM — The post’s 3rd Battalion, 85th Mountain Infantry Regiment, also known as the Warriors in Transition Battalion, will not be affected by a planned reshuffling of the care units across the Army.

The Army announced Thursday that it will deactivate five of the units and establish 13 community care units at 11 installations by Sept. 30. The restructuring, according to the service, is in line with the scheduled withdrawal of soldiers from Afghanistan and a decline in the number of combat wounded.

The post’s battalion serves about 250 soldiers.
