BastogneFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division

Fort Campbell, KY – By late fall of 1944, Allied forces had halted the German advance and secured Paris, France, during World War II. Victory seemed to be at hand. During the relative calm of the German retreat, 101st Airborne Division Soldiers, stationed in Champagne, began to plan a Christmas day football game, known as the “Champagne Bowl.”

In mid-December, however, a German counterattack began in the Ardennes region, and 10,000 Soldiers of the 101st – having never played their game – were called upon to march north and partake in what we now know as the Battle of the Bulge.

Helen Ayer Patton, granddaughter of the legendary Gen. George S. Patton, Jr., who commanded the U.S. Third Army in France and Germany following the Allied invasion of Normandy, takes time to read the names of fallen Soldiers at the Screaming Eagle Memorial Aerie inside the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) headquarters during her visit to Fort Campbell, Feb. 25.

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – No more than five-feet tall, dressed in slacks and a blouse, Frances Cutler Hahn, a Holocaust survivor, confidently approached the podium at the center of the Fort Campbell High School gym April 24th, 2017, to share her life story.

One year later, Frances’ parents put her in a children’s home for protection. When that became unsafe she was moved to live with a Catholic Family on a farm. In 1942, her mother died in the Auschwitz concentration camp. Her father died from combat wounds four years later.
