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.”
