Among other honors, the image inspired the poster for the Vietnam War Movie ‘Platoon’ and graces the covers books and front pages of newspapers.

The photo was donated by Art Greenspon to the 101st when he was inducted as an honorary member of the 327th Infantry Regiment in 2014. Greenspon identified the names and positions of the Soldiers in the photo. Sgt. Maj Watson Baldwin stands with his hands raised signaling to a helicopter.

Fort Campbell, KY – Fort Campbell may be where Soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division get their air assault prowess, but even professionals can learn more about their craft.

Over the course of five days, more than 40 Soldiers from across Fort Campbell recently participated in the sling load inspector certification course.

“In this course we pretty much teach them the basics of sling load operations,” said Staff Sgt. Michael Davis, a sling load instructor with the aerial delivery and field services department at Fort Lee, Virginia. “We teach them everything from the capabilities of the helicopters, how to rig the loads, how to properly inspect the loads and how to fill out the sling load inspection form.”
