Fort Campbell, KY – If it flies, it dies.

That’s a motto occasionally used throughout the air defense community. Air defenders, sometimes called “duck hunters” in a tongue-in-cheek manner, have an increasingly important role within the Army as it shifts focus from counterinsurgency operations to preparing for a more complex decisive action fight against a near-peer opponent.

Fort Campbell, KY – For some, the adrenaline rush reached while in the field is what they look for in an outlet. Some choose to skydive, some rock climb or even bungee jumping. One Soldier chooses something else…auto racing.

Autocross is a timed competition in which drivers navigate one at a time through a defined course on either a sealed or an unsealed surface. It is a form of motorsports that emphasizes safe competition and active participation.
