Fort Campbell, KY – Soldiers from the Mortar Platoons of 1st Battalion, 327th Infantry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division, recently braved the frigid weather to conduct gunner preparedness training January 15th on Johnson field here.

Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan – The Highway 7 corridor running through eastern Nangarhar isn’t like any other in the province, maybe even the country.
Sure, the two- to-three-lane asphalt road doesn’t look like much. It winds through mountains and tree-lined villages and shoots across broad, arid spaces the same as any other paved road in the region.
What makes it special is the traffic that runs along it.

Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan – Seven weeks ago, U.S. and Afghan National Security Forces worked together to clear enemy fighters from Hesarak, a remote district center in western Nangarhar Province.
That operation set several precedents: Afghan National Army and Air forces pooled their resources for a joint air assault; ANSF made their presence known in a little-patrolled area; and Afghans took the lead.

Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan – Last summer, prototypes for new female body armor was distributed to select female 101st Airborne Division Soldiers at Fort Campbell, KY, for field-testing during an upcoming deployment to Afghanistan.
Gender-specific body armor has been, in many ways, a long time coming. Military clothing classically comes in two sizes: too big or too small. While this may be workable for garrison duty uniforms, it isn’t acceptable for protective gear.

Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan – Dozens of Afghan National Army soldiers, Afghan Uniformed Police, and a smattering of U.S. Army Soldiers serving as mission advisors sat by their heavy packs on the gravel, talking and laughing in quiet anticipation, waiting for a sound.
After several hours of checks and double-checks, roll calls and final updates from the command center, the punchy staccato of rotors came faintly in the distance. Louder and louder the noise sounded, until the reverberations deafened and the dusty prop-wash buffeted those waiting at the landing zone for the choppers.
