A Message from Maj. Gen. James McConville, Commander of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) at Fort Campbell

 

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFellow Screaming Eagles and Friends of the 101st:

Through the fall of the Taliban and the Bonn Conference in December 2001; endorsement of the Afghan Constitution in 2004; and two periods of national level elections between 2004 and 2009 the Government, Security Forces, and the people of Afghanistan developed, and continue to develop, as a democratic nation, absent the oppression of the Taliban Regime.

Happy Independence Day
