Fort Campbell, KY – Sometimes the burdens Soldiers bear can feel like a 50-pound rucksack weighing them down physically, mentally and emotionally.

That burden can lead a Soldier to take his or her life, if not properly mitigated.

As part of National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, Soldiers of 129th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) Sustainment Brigade, 101st Abn. Div., conducted the Burden Bearer Challenge, September 20th, here.

2nd Brigade Combat Team - StrikeFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division

Northern, Iraq – Staff Sgt. Darryl “Gunny” Joseph leapt into the night of northern Iraq as the UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter touched down, the dust from the rotary wash clouding his vision. His mission was simple: set up the landing zone and guide in the aircraft carrying the M777 artillery pieces to the raid site.

The process of setting up a landing zone, or sling load area, was not new to him. Back at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, Joseph and the Soldiers from Battery C, 1st Battalion, 320th Field Artillery Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, “Task Force Strike,” practiced sling load operations many times before.

But this was not a training exercise; this was the real deal.

U.S Army Soldiers with Battery C, 1st Battalion, 320th Field Artillery Regiment, Task Force Strike, execute a fire mission in northern Iraq, Aug. 14 2016, during an operation to support the Iraqi army. Battery C is supporting the Iraqi security forces with indirect fires as retake territory from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. (1st Lt. Daniel I Johnson/Released)
