Fort Campbell, KY – In line with directives from the Department of the Army, Fort Campbell has upgraded the installation’s Health Protection Condition Level (HPCON) to level Charlie.
There are not yet any confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) on Fort Campbell, but there are more than 200 tests pending. Leaders have taken these actions out of an abundance of caution, at the direction of the Army, and to mirror the efforts of civilian partners as they work together to mitigate the spread of the virus.
In terms of personal impact, the upgrade to HPCON level Charlie will not significantly differ from the modifications announced March 24th during the installation’s virtual town hall meeting.
Fort Campbell, KY – Most Soldiers run three times a week because their first sergeant orders them too, some Soldiers do it to stay within standards, and some do it to socialize and to be one with nature.
The latter would most accurately describe Capt. Michael Rose, commander of B Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), who ran the 100-kilometer race and won first place in the Lone Star 100 on February 8th, 2020.
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Mark Green visited soldiers from Fort Campbell’s own 101st Airborne Division 3rd Brigade Combat Team at the United States-Mexico border last Friday.
While in El Paso, Representative Green met leadership from the 3rd Brigade and fellow soldiers from the 7th District of Tennessee. He also toured various operations centers at Fort Bliss as well as sections of the U.S.-Mexico border where Rakkasans are stationed.
Fort Campbell, KY – Reuniting with a long-lost friend is a good thing, but reuniting with a brother can save a life.
Veterans of B Company, 2nd Battalion, 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division, Fort Bragg, North Carolina, reunited with the help of the Independence Fund in Nashville, Tennessee, September 26th-29th, in hopes of maintaining their “brotherly” connections for life support.
“This has been the best experience for me since I got out [the Army],” said Wesley Rogers, a reunion attendee. “The one thing that I noticed when I got here is how much better I felt looking in the faces of all these people, verses when I was at home and I’d let all these people go by.”
101st Airborne Division Screaming Eagles put skills to test for Expert Field Medical Badge at Fort Campbell
Fort Campbell, KY – More than 100 Screaming Eagles began preparation November 18th to test their skills in the medical field and earn an Expert Field Medical Badge.
“It is by standard one of the hardest badges to earn across the Army,” said Maj. Sarah Burlee, medical operations officer for 101st Airborne Division Sustainment Brigade, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), and officer in charge of EFMB testing. “Not everyone can be an expert.”
Experts are considered to be at the top of their fields. For Soldiers who earn the EFMB this is no different.
“It was built statistically so that your top percentages earn the EFMB,” Burlee said. “It’s not your medium block, not your top-half block, it’s the top block.”
Fort Campbell, KY – It is not uncommon for Army brigades to have healthy competition amongst Soldiers when they are required to be in the same room for an extended period of time but during this operation there has been nothing but teamwork and willingness to learn across the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) footprint. Maintenance Soldiers are sharing their wealth of knowledge of technical expertise with one another.
Fort Campbell, KY – Bushido is a Japanese collective term for the many codes of honor and ideals that directed the samurai way of life; meaning “the way of the warrior,” the “way” originates from the samurai moral values, most commonly stressing some combination of sincerity, frugality, loyalty, martial arts mastery, and honor until death.
Leaders with the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), carry out the incoming brigade commander’s intent in the third annual Bushido training event where leaders are led by leaders and where senior leaders mentor the next generation of leaders at Camp Rudder, Eglin Air Force Base, FL on August 26th-29th.
Nashville, TN – GPS, duct tape, microwaves and computers—these everyday items have one thing in common: Each was invented, in part or in whole, as the result of U.S. military research. The military’s rich history of innovation continues today, at numerous labs and engineering centers and focused on high-level problems.
There is a gap, however: There are myriad problems at the warfighter level that Army labs never encounter. Fort Campbell soldiers from the 3rd Brigade Combat Team (BCT) of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) and researchers from Vanderbilt University are addressing this issue head-on, and are building a partnership to identify and solve tactical problems with Soldier-inspired solutions.
Fort Campbell, KY – On Thursday, August 22nd, 2019, 3rd Brigade Combat Team “Rakkasan,” 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) soldiers will welcome a new commander at 9:00am.
