The Currahee have a distinguished heraldry, which we will ensure is maintained as most of the unit will be reinvested into the other brigades.

U.S. Army Fort Campbell will experience a net loss of less than 400 military positions, and will maintain a military end-strength of 6,000 higher than pre-9/11.

Fort Campbell remains an essential power projection platform and home to multiple strategic crisis response units and force-generating capabilities.
