The Cyclone Division


The 38th Infantry Division provides fully manned, equipped, trained and expertly led units prepared to deploy and conduct unified land operations for combatant commanders and to respond to any domestic crisis in support of the governor of Indiana or other civil authorities.

The family readiness group is a command-sponsored organization of family members, volunteers and service members who, together, provide an avenue of mutual support and assistance. It is a network of communications among the family members, the commander, and community resources. Being ready means having the knowledge, skills and courage to take care of yourself and your family ~ no matter the situation. Readiness is a permanent responsibility and it does not begin or end with deployment.
