Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionRakkasanFort Campbell, KY – Growing up in Fontana California, Andre Shinda loved to play sports. He played football through high school and wanted what every other high school football player did, to go to the pros.

By his junior year in high school, Shinda was already being looked at by college universities. He was fortunate to make it out of the area he grew up in. Many of his friends and teammates were not. Some had run-ins with the law, others problems with illegal substances.

101st Sustainment Brigade - LifelinersFort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne Division

Fort Campbell, KY – Two lines of cars trying to enter Fort Campbell through Gate 4, one of the busiest of the installation’s 10 access control points, stretch nearly back to Fort Campbell Boulevard.

Three soldiers stop cars at the gate. Judging by outward appearances, including the fluorescent yellow vest, large black belts and pistols, the only thing different about these soldiers from the military police soldiers who normally staff the ACP is their patch. They all wear the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) eagle patch on their left shoulder.
