101st Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion Returns

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – On a nice sunny Tuesday afternoon, 134 members of the 101st Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion returned to Campbell Army Airfield on the second of three flights for the day. The plane touched down just before 12:30pm.

Lieutenant Colonel Patrick Seiber, Public Affairs Officer with the 101st Airborne Division ( Air Assault ) was one of the soldiers on this flight. Now the task at hand is to get things ready for the return of Major General John F. Campbell on Friday.

When the announcement that the plane was 15 minutes out, friends and family gathered outside hanger 3 to watch the planes arrival.

As the soldiers made their way off the plane, one soldier laid his weapon and ruck sack to the ground, then preceed to kiss the ground just a few feet away from the plane.

Once all soldiers were in formation with their yellow roses, the hanger doors opened wide as soldiers marched inside where they were welcomed home by Brigadier General Jeffrey N. Colt and then release for 15 minutes of family time.
