Tennessee

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – This weekend, Senator Marsha Blackburn had the distinct honor of visiting our men and women of the Tennessee Army National Guard serving overseas in Poland and Ukraine before they return home from a nine-month deployment.

Too often, non-combat deployments can be overlooked and I wanted to let these brave Americans know their missions are critical to the national security of the United States. The 278th Armored Cavalry Regiment (ACR) headquartered in Knoxville is one of just two heavy ACRs still in existence. The motto of the 278th is “I Volunteer, Sir” – a spirit that I saw embodied in each soldier I met with throughout the weekend.

101st Airborne Rakkasans build squad-level proficiency at live-fire range

 

Written by Spc. Patrick Kirby
40th Public Affairs Detachment

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – The range comes on the heels of their recent Joint Regional Training Center mission as opposing forces.

“The training up to this event was pretty in-depth,” said 2nd Lt. Josh Hartwell, a native of Crete, Nebraska, and the officer-in-charge of the squad live-fire range. “After returning from JRTC we got right after it again with a team live-fire and now with the squad live-fire.”

The range integrated the crawl-walk-run methodology by starting with a blank-fire during the day, followed by an after action review. The soldiers then rehearsed their hand and arm signals, and their patrolling tactics more and went through the range again as a live-fire.

Draven Pancake, a native of Evansville, Indiana, and an infantrymen with Company C, 3rd Battalion, 187th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team “Rakkasans”, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), engages targets, from his support-by-fire position, Nov. 7.
