Written by U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Kerensa Hardy, Combined Joint Task Force-101 Public Affairs  

The Logo of the 101st Airborne DivisionBagram Airfield, Afghanistan – As the Army marked its 235th birthday, the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) took command of Regional Command-East during a ceremony on Bagram Airfield’s flight line June 14th.

With a C-17 Globemaster III waiting to transport the outgoing command, the 82nd Airborne Division passed the mantle of leadership to the 101st Abn. Div., now Combined Joint Task Force-101.

It was a little more than a year ago when the All American division took the reins from the Screaming Eagles in what has seemingly become a tradition between the two headquarters.
