Stanley Sliwinski, commander of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) Sustainment Brigade, as he presided over the ceremony.

101st Combat Aviation Brigade holds 2nd Annual FARP Rodeo at Fort Campbell

Wings of DestinyFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division

Fort Campbell, KY – When an aircraft lands at a Forward Arming and Refueling Point (FARP), it can be refueled and reloaded with ammunition in a matter of minutes, allowing it to continue with its mission as quickly as possible.

But, FARPs don’t operate on their own.

“In logistics we’re sometimes the unsung heroes,” said Maj. Robin Eskelson the support operations officer for the 101st Combat Aviation Brigade. “We’re the ones providing the fuel, the bullets and the clothing and a lot of times we go unnoticed. [The FARP Rodeo] was a time for that to be noticed; to be understood that aircraft don’t fly without fuel.”
