  Division (military) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In most modern militaries, a division tends to be the largest combined arms unit capable of independent operations; due to its self-sustaining role as a unit with a range of combat troops and suitable combat support forces, which can be divided into various organic combinations.
This does not mean that divisions are equal in size or structure from military to military, but generally divisions have in most cases come to be units of 10,000 to 20,000 troops with substantial enough support organic to the unit to be capable of independent operations.
Usually the direct organization of the division consists of one to four brigades or regiments of the combat arm of the division along with a brigade or regiment of combat support (usually artillery) and a number of direct-reporting battalions for various specialized support tasks (often reconnaissance and combat engineers).

Division XXI (DXXI) is the force designed to remain decisive in land warfare and optimized for mid to high intensity spectrum of conflict into the 21st Century.
DXXI is the division design needed to serve as the core force essential for force cohesion and dominance to meet the demands in performing offensive and defensive operations in the expanded Division Battle Space of the future.
The intention is to retain the 10 division headquarters as battle command headquarters, but take much of the enabling resources, the air defense, the signal and all of the enablers that are in the division base, and push them down to brigade level and increase the number of brigades under each one of those divisions.

 military infantry division patch10
Divisions either organized before or during World War I did not use the designation "infantry." The re-designation of these divisions as infantry came sometime after World War I when the divisions' structure was reorganized to include specialists in a wide variety of functions.
Beside the infantry division, motorized and airborne divisions were formed as well as a light (truck) division, a light (jungle) division, and a mountain division.
The airborne division was initially a miniature version of the infantry division with the addition of a small antiaircraft battalion, one parachute, and two glider regiments.

 Former Spouse Military Benefits - Military Divorce Guide
Because a civilian spouse with a decree of legal separation in Colorado still retains military benefits, parties who do not intend on remarrying may wish to consider this option if, e.g., the civilian spouse has a preexisting medical condition which makes it difficult to obtain alternative medical care.
Military housing is generally only authorized to servicemembers residing with their families, so typically an installation will give a civilian spouse a reasonable time after separation to vacate on-post housing.
Commissary, military exchange (BX/PX) and other installation privileges are suspended while the former spouse is remarried, but reinstated upon the remarriage terminating due to death or dissolution.
