BastogneFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – Thursday marked 101st Airborne Division’s Safety Stand-down Day where soldiers sat through classes on the important steps to stay safe just before their Labor Day weekend.

However, the 1st Brigade Combat Team celebrated this day with a unique experience. Aside from teaching soldiers about importance of suicide prevention training, fire arm safety, privately owned vehicle safety awareness and motor cycle safety, they heavily stressed the issue of drunk driving.

When we first heard about safety day and the key topic was going to be vehicle safety, we thought about ways we could improve upon that, said Capt. Joyce Louden, a provost martial with Headquarters and Headquarters Company.
