SEOUL, South Korea -- The U.S. and South Korea will form a combined division early next year to improve the allies' warfighting capabilities and create more opportunities for efficient joint training, defense officials said Thursday.

"It is also going to serve as momentum to overcome problems, including sentiment and language, between the U.S. and South Korean troops," said a spokesman for South Korea's Ministry of National Defense.

He said the combined division will be headquartered in Uijeongbu and headed by an American commander with a South Korean deputy.

The new division will primarily consist of a headquarters,a US brigade and a ROK brigade.The 2d division will contribute a brigade.Two of its brigades are at Ft Lewis with one armored brigade ,Fires Brigade and Combat Aviation brigade in Korea.I would think the KATUSA augmentation would remain the same.
Speaking of the US Army's 210th "Fires Brigade" you mentioned:

SEOUL, South Korea -- The U.S. wants to keep an artillery brigade stationed near the Demilitarized Zone after the planned relocation of American forces to the southern half of South Korea, according to media reports.

The request to keep the 2nd Infantry Division's 210th Fires Brigade at Camp Casey was made earlier this week during military consultations in Seoul, according to South Korea's Yonhap News. U.S. officials claimed that moving the brigade would hurt its combat readiness, and have "repeatedly and strongly" pushed to keep the unit in Dongducheon, the report said, citing unidentified diplomatic sources.
