Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell's Week of the Eagles

Fort Campbell, KY – This year, for the first time in the Screaming Eagle’s history, the game of Ultimate Frisbee is a part of the Week of the Eagles competition.  The Week of the Eagles is celebrated each year to honor the activation of the 101st Airborne Division in 1942.  This year is the division’s 70th anniversary.

Many ask, what is Ultimate Frisbee and the answer is quite long. The game of Ultimate Frisbee is like soccer mixed with football, mixed with hockey. It’s played with a seven-person team, on a 100-yard field with two 10-yard end zones. There is a “throw-off” down the field, after which the offense begins passing the disk.
