Fort Campbell, KY – Soldiers with F Company, 5th Battalion, 101st Combat Aviation Brigade, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault,) Pathfinders, conducted a jump at Corregidor drop zone on Fort Campbell, KY, October 16th, 2013.

This jump was the last airborne exercise for the Pathfinders. The jump is being conducted because the Pathfinder companies are coming off jump status for the foreseeable future.

Taking the Pathfinders off of jump status is the end of an era. The Pathfinders of the 101st CAB trace their roots back to World War II.
