2nd Brigade Combat Team - StrikeFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionGatlinburg, TN – The life of a Soldier whose official status is single, can at times be difficult. Demanding work hours, living in close quarters and maintaining high standards amongst a large group, are just of few of the daily challenges facing the Strike solos of the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault).

According to Strong Bonds, a group dedicated to increasing the individual Soldier and family member readiness through relationship education and skill training, about half of the US Army is made up of single Soldiers, making it around 250,000 unwed Soldiers.
