Spc. Gilliann Campbell, a Female Engagement team Soldier with 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), adjusts the collar of her Generation III Improved Outer Tactical Vest, Aug. 21, 2012, at Fort Campbell, Ky. Campbell is one of 19 female Soldiers from the 101st to participate in the fielding of this vest designed specifically for the needs of Army women. Campbell said it was already easier to pick up items off the ground in the shorter and less bulky vest.
