101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) Public Affairs Staff

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort 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 – 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 - 101st Airborne DivisionFort 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.”

Michael Hinkle, medic for 426th Brigade Support Battalion, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), applies a chest seal to the training mannequin, Nov. 18, during a demonstration for Expert Field Medical Badge candidates at Fort Campbell.

Fort Campbell Soldiers partner with Vanderbilt University to create a new model for innovation

 

U.S. Army Acquisition Support CenterNashville, 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.

Soldiers from the 101st and Dr. Matthew Yandell, chief innovation officer of HeroWear and recent Vanderbilt graduate, carry howitzer rounds to simulate the physical demands of field artillery missions. (Dr. Karl Zelik, Vanderbilt University)
