Fort Campbell, KY – The suicide crash

While driving down a road he hadn’t frequented in nearly three years, Sgt. Chase Rapp, a human resource noncommissioned officer with 716th Military Police Battalion, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) Sustainment Brigade, 101st Abn. Div., and his girlfriend encountered a truck that had crashed into a utility pole.

Rapp slowed down to ask onlookers if everything was okay. “Well, we think so,” was the not-so-reassuring response.
