Mark Stammer, the acting commander of Fort Campbell, KY, while the 101st Airborne Division is deployed to Afghanistan, held a press conference yesterday to discuss the Upcoming Force Reduction and Reorganization Strategy that will see the 101st Airborne Division lose the storied 4th Brigade Combat Team “Currahees”.

The 101st Airborne Division was quick to assure the community that this does not mean a mass loss of personnel from Fort Campbell as the Soldiers and other personnel will be redistributed among the remaining brigades both locally and within the Army, which will mean an increase in personnel for the remaining Brigade Combat Teams on post.

Fort Campbell, KY – The U.S. Army just marked its 238th birthday and in its centuries of existence, it has developed a strong tradition of service and sacrifice for the nation.

It is fairly unique in that it is an organization of organizations, each having their own history, accolades and traditions that contribute to the greater whole.
