Wet and stormy arrival for 274 soldiers

 

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – It was a early morning arrival as 274 Wings of Destiny Soldiers with the 101 Combat Aviation Brigade arrived back to Fort Campbell, Kentucky on a rainy morning. The hanger was packed with family and friends as severe storm passed through the area. Several family members braved the rain and wind to welcome home their soldier.

Due to the weather soldiers were allowed to break protocol of dropping their gear and forming up just outside the hanger to march in. As the doors opened a few feet, one by one, they filed into the hanger and into formation. Once inside they marched forward as the Welcome Home Ceremony began.

Waiting inside was Molly Castro who was looking forward to seeing see her husband  CW2 Tomas Castro, an Apache Pilot with C-Company 1-101st Aviation Regiment, Task Force Eagle Assault. Molly stated that  the anticipation makes minutes feel like hours, but all in all it was a great experience. The Castos looked forward to being able to walk in the front door of their home together for the first time in a long time.
