Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – The 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) held its first ever Adjutant General Corps Soldier and Noncommissioned Officer of the Quarter board at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, December 15th-16th, 2015.

According to their website, the AG Corps is one of the oldest existing branches in the U.S. Army – second only to the Infantry. Their functionality throughout the years has proven to be vital to not only the success of Soldiers, but almost just as important, their moral.

“Have you ever spoken to a Soldier or witnessed the look on their face when they missed cutoff because of missing documentation,” asked Sgt. Maj. Jesse E. Ruth, G1 sergeant major, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). “Or scramble to figure out what they are going to be when they received a “no pay due” leave and earning statement? The AG profession, when performed correctly, is there to ensure things like that don’t happen.”

Sgt. Maj. Jesse E. Ruth, G1 sergeant major, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) presents a coin to Spc. David Rosario, 1st Squadron, 75th Calvary Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) following his selection of the division’s AG Soldier of the quarter.
