2nd Brigade Combat Team - StrikeFort Campbell, KY – “You’ve found in one another, a bond, that exists only in combat, among brothers,” said Cpl. Joseph Liebgott, from the TV mini-series, “Band of Brothers.”

The bonds that were formed on the Kandahar battlefield created a strong connection between the Strike Soldiers, which continues today, especially with those wounded during the Afghanistan surge, which are now healing in other units.

The 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), maintain the bond with their wounded warriors and held its wounded warrior lunch at the Strike Dining Facility, January 12th, where the wounded and Strike Soldiers ate together, reconnected with their units and confirmed they are still a part of the Strike family.
