Clarksville High Lady Wildcats extend win streak to three with 55-12 victory over Fort Campbell

 

Clarksville High School WildcatsClarksville, TN – Clarksville High School’s girls basketball team extended its season-best win streak to three games, Saturday, December 20th at William Workman Gymnasium, as they cruised to an easy 55-12 victory over Fort Campbell High School.

Literally, right from the opening jump ball the Lady Wildcats (6-8) were in control of the game, as Ellie Treanton scored four seconds into the contest on a layup after the opening tip.

It would be 4-0 Lady Wildcats when Fort Campbell (0-8) would get its first points of the game, on a jumper from the right wing by Charisse Fairley, with 5:39 left in the opening quarter, but that would be as close as the Lady Falcons would get.

By Sgt. Matthew Britton, 27th Public Affairs Detachment

United States Africa CommandMonrovia, Liberia – Ebola may be the reason why U.S. service members have come to Liberia’s aid, but it’s far from the only health concern. Malaria, yellow and dengue fever are among a long list of diseases, viruses and parasites that can threaten troops’ health. Temperature checks, hand washing stations and ensuring service members have taken their anti-malaria medication aren’t the only lines of defense against these microscopic dangers.

A part of this defense consists of preventative medicine Soldiers from the 61st Preventative Medicine Detachment, 86th Combat Support Hospital, Fort Campbell, Kentucky. As part of the Joint Forces Command – United Assistance, they support the U.S. Agency for International Development-led mission, Operation United Assistance, by controlling and eliminating health risks in the JFC area of operations.

Maj. Benjamin Qi, commander, 61st Preventative Medicine Detachment, 86th Combat Support Hospital, Fort Campbell, Ky., sprays insecticide around the area where a health clinic is currently being built in Gbediah, Liberia. Operation United Assistance is a Department of Defense operation in Liberia to provide logistics, training and engineering support to U.S. Agency for International Development-led efforts to contain the Ebola virus outbreak in western Africa.

Written by Spc. Caitlyn Byrne
27th Public Affairs Detachment

United States Africa CommandMonrovia, Liberia – With a metallic groan, the doors to a twenty-foot shipping container opened to reveal a cavernous space that, come every mail day, is filled with rows upon rows of brown and white boxes – care packages for deployed Soldiers.

Away from friends, family and most everything that they are familiar with, Soldiers deployed and stationed at the Barclay Training Center in Monrovia, Liberia, in support of Joint Forces Command – United Assistance, look forward to almost anything that can give them a taste of home. Often times that taste of home comes in the mail.

Eric Mohr, right, a native of Clarksville, Tenn., and wheeled vehicle mechanic for the Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), Joint Forces Command – United Assistance, smiles as he receives two packages from home while deployed to the Barclay Training Center, Monrovia, Liberia, Dec. 10, 2014. Each week HHB Soldiers travel to the Roberts International Airport outside Monrovia to retrieve an average of 2,000 pounds of mail for their fellow Soldiers stationed in Liberia. (Spc.
