Fort Campbell, KY – Like most weekdays, loud voices and shouting rang through the early morning air at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. However, this morning was different.

It wasn’t just the incredibly thick gray fog clinging to the dewy grass that made it different. Nor was it the unusually large numbers of Soldiers conducting conditioning foot marches on A Shau Valley Road that made it unusual.

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.
