2nd Brigade Combat Team - StrikeFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division

Fort Campbell, KY – When the bullets are flying and the enemy is sight, a Soldier’s heart is beating fast, his adrenaline is pumping and his mind races, but he keeps his cool, maintains his composure and eliminates the enemy.

The only way he reaches that level of skill is by continuous training and the deploying Strike Force Security Force Assistance Teams from the 2nd Battalion, 502nd Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), played out this heart racing scenario by conducting a stress shoot training exercise at Fort Campbell’s Range 40a, February 16th.

James Nardelli, part of a deploying Security Force Assistance Team with the 2nd Battalion, 502nd Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), fires at a target during a stress shoot training exercise at Fort Campbell’s Range 40a, Feb. 16th.
