101st Sustainment Brigade - LifelinersFort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne Division

Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan – Connections are hard to find when there is more than 7,000 miles between loved ones. Two military families found a special way to keep their bond despite the separation. As two dads approached the end of their tour in Afghanistan, they discovered a way for their children to begin a homecoming countdown.

One hundred days out from their redeployment two soldiers with 101st Sustainment Brigade (Lifeliners) began a 100-day burpee challenge to stay actively connected with their children – in a fun healthy way – after an already long deployment away from home.
