Fort Campbell, KY – The soldiers of the 326th Engineer Battalion held a patch changing ceremony October 18th at the battalion’s headquarters here.
The ceremony marked the battalion’s return to the 101st Airborne Division from the 36th Engineer brigade out of Fort Hood, Texas, and joining the division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team.
A Message from Maj. Gen. James McConville, Commander of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) at Fort Campbell
Fellow 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.
Reflecting on this evolution during our American Independence Day, I cannot help but wonder if there any similarities between the experience of the people of Afghanistan and us.
