Fort Campbell, KY – As he walked into one of the post shopettes dressed in an Army Multi-cami uniform, Lt. Col. David Thompson said he was told, “thank you” and “welcome home” from a few of the civilians there.

“They thought I had come home from a deployment,” he said.

The fact was Thompson, commander of the 716th Military Police Battalion, 101st Sustainment Brigade, was actually preparing to head out on deployment. He and the rest of his battalion headquarters staff left this week for their year-long tour to Afghanistan.
