2nd Brigade Combat Team - StrikeFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division

Kara Soar Base, Iraq – In Iraq, the Kara Soar Base feels like a different world; only a few hours away lies the modern city of Erbil, with sky rises and brand name car dealerships.

Yet, here, in the farmland of northern Iraq at Kara Soar, in the searing heat, through the thick dust smoke can be seen rising from battles raging near the Tigris River and missiles heard launching nearby as smoke clouds on the horizons confirm a successful strike.

A world U.S. Soldiers face daily in support of the Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve mission.

U.S. Soldiers with 1st Battalion, 320th Field Artillery Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), fire an M777 howitzer at Kara Soar Base, Iraq, May 23, 2016. The Soldiers conducted fire missions to calibrate their weapons systems. The fire missions at the Kara Soar Base serve two roles: to provide force protection for Coalition and Iraqi security forces and to support the Iraqi Security forces ground maneuver by providing indirect fire support, enabling them to defeat Da’esh.
