Fort Campbell, KY – Most Soldiers expect to deploy at least once within their time in the Army. Two, maybe even three deployments are somewhat common for today’s Soldiers as well, but then there are the others who have deployed more times than this.

Soldiers assigned to the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), who served during four deployments with the Strike Brigade, were recognized at Strike Academy earlier this month by Maj. Gen. James McConville, commander of the 101st Airborne Division.
