Fort Campbell, KY – Two lines of cars trying to enter Fort Campbell through Gate 4, one of the busiest of the installation’s 10 access control points, stretch nearly back to Fort Campbell Boulevard.

Three soldiers stop cars at the gate. Judging by outward appearances, including the fluorescent yellow vest, large black belts and pistols, the only thing different about these soldiers from the military police soldiers who normally staff the ACP is their patch. They all wear the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) eagle patch on their left shoulder.
