Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division101st Sustainment Brigade - LifelinersFort Sill, OK – A loudspeaker blared “incoming, incoming, incoming” and Soldiers immediately dropped to the ground. A Counter — Rocket, Artillery and Mortar gun whirred as the weapon system tracked the threat.

A four-second burst from the Gatling-type gun filled the air with tracer fire. Then the 300 rounds crackled as they exploded looking like a fireworks show that created a wall of flack which intercepted and destroyed the incoming mortar.

The Soldiers scrambled to their feet and headed toward a bunker.
