Fort Campbell, KY – To ensure the cleanliness and keep the peace is the everyday responsibility of selected soldiers in the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division here.

Day in and day out, Bastogne soldiers monitor their post and their designated areas while on either staff duty or charge of quarters assigned to them by their unit.

“The importance of CQ and staff duty is continuity from the companies and from the battalions,” said Command Sgt. Maj. Marco Torres, 426th Brigade Support Battalion command sergeant major. “That way during the hours we are not physically here, we have someone that can carry any information or any issues that arise. We have someone that is competent that is representing the company commander and the battalion commander and can address the situation.”
