101st Airborne Division Iron Rakkasans: 50 years later

RakkasanFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division

Fort Campbell, KY – Friday morning people boarded two white buses on the final leg of a trip 50 years in the making. Many of the passengers were founding members of D Company, 3rd Battalion, 187th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade, Rakkasans, 101st Airborne Division, created in 1967 during the Vietnam War.

Traveling with these men were other veterans, spouses, children, grandchildren and siblings. Throughout the day they talked and joked with each other, as they caught up since their last reunion. The group looked more like a large Family than anything else, and that is because of how close these men became when they were young Soldiers.

Veterans and their Families who returned to Fort Campbell Sept. 8, 2017, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the founding of D Company, 3rd Battalion, 187th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade, 101st Airborne Division, visits a wall that includes the names of the Rakkasans that fell in combat during a search and destroy mission in March 1968. These veterans did not find out the fate of the Soldiers evacuated from the battlefield with critical wounds for decades, and the reunion was the first time some of the veterans had seen each other since Vietnam.
