41 IB I Corps Rear Battle brigade (taken directly from Congressional Testimony and a former Officer in the Bde)
"41st Separate Infantry Brigade had a RACO mission in S. Korea for I Corps. 2-218 FA was the direct support battalion for the brigade. So far as I know, we were the only U.S. element which had such a mission for Korea. During Team Spirit, our reps would spend as much time down near Uijongbu as most units did up near the DMZ. Our batteries were expected, like our rifle battalions, to operate semi-autonomous across the Corps rear area. Our brigade H.Q. was supposedly going to be co-located with a ROK division H.Q. for security and comms. Don't know what they were going to do with our Arty battalion H.Q. but we were the brigade's alternate TOC."

I have also filed a FOI request and awaiting an answer.

Some Sources:

Part 6, starting on page 252, gives you all the ARNG FY92 Force Structure Reductions. It gives the rationale for each unit (and there are a ton)
"Reduced Global Threat" ie non-NATO
"Reduced NATO Threat" ie secondary NATO mission
"NATO CAPSTONE" ie European/NATO mission ... up;seq=258

More about CAPSTONE:
3-1. History and principles

a. The WARTRACE Program dates back to 1973 when the Affil¬
iation Program was approved. The intent of Affiliation was to im¬
prove the training and readiness of RC combat battalions and
brigades by associating them with AA units. Under this program,
AA divisions formed training relationships with ARNG and USAR
units and worked with these units during both AT and IDT. In 1976,
combat support (CS) and combat service support (CSS) units were
added to the program. In 1978, two ARNG divisions were linked
with two AA divisions under the Division Partnership Program to
increase the readiness of ARNG divisions.

b. The success of the Affiliation Program led to an expansion of
the program’s goal in 1979. The goal was to integrate RC units into
war plans. The Affiliation Program, other readiness programs, RC
force modernization programs, and wartime requirements were all
rolled into the CAPSTONE Program. The program's original

(1) Clearly defined the role of every unit in the Army (AA and
RC) for either USAREUR wartime or CONUS sustaining base

(2) Established both planning and training associations between
RC units and the wartime AA headquarters.

(3) Established a Total Army program for force planning.

(4) Established a Total Army program for POMCUS, moderniza¬
tion, training, and readiness.

(5) Established a basis from which to plan mobilization and
deployment of RC units in wartime.

c. The Army CAPSTONE Program was established by the Chief
of Staff of the Army on 6 December 1979. FORSCOM was desig¬
nated as the coordinating authority for CAPSTONE and published
initial CAPSTONE alignments in August 1980.

d. In 1983, the program was expanded to encompass three war¬
time scenarios - Europe, Pacific, and Southwest Asia. A fourth set
of alignments for CONUS sustaining and training base and the
Theater Defense Brigades was also developed.
