Wings of DestinyFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division

Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan – At first glance, it might seem like the Junior Enlisted Council is a group of Soldiers trying to pull a fast one over their sergeants.

The JEC, 6th Battalion, 101st Combat Aviation Brigade, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), is a proactive council that represents the voice of more than 400 Soldiers from private to staff sergeant. Their mission is to inform senior-enlisted leaders on enlisted-force matters – including morale – and recommend policy changes affecting the readiness of the enlisted Soldiers.
