Fort Carson, CO – This Army installation tucked into the Rocky Mountains, hosted Task Force Eagle Assault, 101st Combat Aviation Brigade, 101st Airborne Division for High Altitude Mountainous Environment Training. This is training that is now required of all aviation units preparing to deploy to Afghanistan.

This rotation yielded new and old challenges to TF Eagle Assault command and pilots. This training precedes the arrival of 13th Combat Aviation Brigade to Fort Carson, CO, by mere months. Some in the local communities and activist groups clamored to stop the arrival of 13th CAB because of fears of damage to the environment and potential degradation to the quality of life in the areas surrounding Fort Carson, CO.
