Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment - Soar - Night Stalkers

Fort Campbell, KY – It’s widely-known that the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne) employs some of the best aviators, crew-chiefs and support Soldiers the Army has to offer. Given the nature of their mission, however, little else is known about the extensive training that goes into making — and maintaining — Night Stalkers. Not even spouses are exempt from the shroud of “need-to-know basis.”

Tuesday morning, 160th spouses arrived at the Old Clarksville Base in droves, ready to experience a day in the life of a 160th Soldier.
