Fort Campbell, KY – Past and present members of the 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) family gathered together here last week for its annual Reunion Week festivities.
This year marked the unit’s 52nd anniversary of its activation, which originally took place September 21st, 1961, at Fort Bragg, NC. Although a time to celebrate, the “reunion” has become much more than just an annual gathering throughout the years.
The 5th SFG (A) has a storied history written by very quiet professionals, but more importantly they are a family that encompasses Veterans, past and present, families and friend of the Legion for generations past.
