The 162d Depot Brigade was a training and receiving formation in the United States Army during World War I.

World War I

Secretary of War Newton Baker authorized Major General Samuel Sturgis to organize the 162d Depot Brigade, an element of the 87th Division (National Army). It was later detached and placed directly under Camp Pike as an independent unit. The depot brigade filled two purposes: one was to train replacements for the American Expeditionary Forces; the other was to act as a receiving unit for men sent to camps by local draft boards.
