The Department of Defense has notified Headquarters 25th Infantry Division that it will deploy to Iraq as part of the next force rotation, the Army Pacific Public Affairs Office said today.

Approximately 800 soldiers from Tropic Lightning' division headquarters at Schofield Barracks will replace a redeploying unit.

The deployment will take place sometime at the end of the year and will last for a year.

The deployed headquarters will provide command and control, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance in support of security operations.
