  • Garrison CSM gives kudos to communities, civilian workforce

    Jun 9, 2014

    It's a typical Tuesday afternoon at Fort Campbell, and the inside of Garrison Headquarters is particularly quiet. The peaceful atmosphere gave Garrison Command Sgt. Maj. Stephen Bower time to reflect on his tenure here. Bower will soon be leaving for a new assignment, and he invites the community to attend his Change of Responsibility ceremony at Garrison Headquarters, June 23 at 3 p.m. The Soldier, with 26-years of service, admits that learning how to be a garrison command sergeant major required a certain learning curve after spending most of his career as an Infantryman, where he deployed to Uganda, Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq. However, being at the post on the Kentucky-Tennessee state line for the first time made it enjoyable.

  • Better halves don't quit: 160th spouses take on SOAR challenge

    Jun 9, 2014

    It's widely-known that the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment employs some of the best aviators, crew-chiefs and support Soldiers the Army has to offer. Given the nature of their mission, however, little else is known about the extensive training that goes into making -- and maintaining -- Night Stalkers. Not even spouses are exempt from the shroud of "need-to-know basis." Tuesday morning, 160th spouses arrived at the Old Clarksville Base in droves, ready to experience a day in the life of a 160th Soldier. Those who hope to join the ranks of the Night Stalkers must endure a five-week training cycle -- what is infamously known as "Green Platoon." The SOAR Challenge (sometimes known as Pink Platoon) gave participants a chance to go through a day's worth of challenges -- an exercise designed to boost morale and encourage cohesion among Night Stalker spouses. "The day is about giving some of our spouses the opportunity to experience what these guys go through … in terms of physical fitness, challenges through modified combat, rifle experience and the Air Assault course," said Maj. Alan Hill, 160th SOAR public affairs officer. "They get the chance to be a Soldier for a day and share in what their spouses do on a day-to-day basis."

  • Motorcycle safety week rides onto post

    Jun 9, 2014

    There is nothing like that feeling of freedom that one gets while riding on the open road, racing through the wind. That exhilaration, however, can be taken away in a split second due to any number of factors. Speed, collision with other vehicles, rider fatigue and indiscipline are just some of the causes that can lead to a death or a lifetime of disability. To ride means requiring skill and diligence when on the road. Cars are built with numerous safety features in the case of an accident which causes some drivers to feel protected and invincible. Motorcycle riders, on the other hand, wear their protection and have to pay much closer attention to the road and travel conditions. Data from the Combat Readiness Center states that there were 41 motorcycle fatalities Army-wide in fiscal year 2013 with five of those Soldiers being from Fort Campbell. According to the Installation Safety Office, as of April 22 the Army has already seen 21 motorcycle fatalities for fiscal year 2014 with three of those being Soldiers from Fort Campbell. Even further, 14 of those casualties were noncommissioned officers.

    Jun 5, 2014

    Jun 5, 2014

    WATERVLIET ARSENAL, N.Y. -- A call for fire initiates a thing of beauty called a "battle drill," as well-trained troops perform a series of tasks in an integrated and synchronized fluid motion. To an observer, this precision drill and sense of urgency to execute a mission is awe inspiring. But what is more inspiring is what cannot be seen ̶ a strong sense of confidence the Soldier, Marine, or Airman has in his weapon system that the gun will not fail them in the heat of battle.

The 22-year-old spent a few precious moments in silence looking at the letters that spelled, Chief Warrant Officer 3 Steven B. Redd.

"A lot of people remember my dad as being intense -- an intense dude, very aggressive into his work," Jazlyn said.

    Jun 2, 2014

    Retired Col. Burt Walrath, and Gail, his wife of more than 43 years, stood proudly near 101st Airborne Division and Fort Campbell commander Gen. James C. McConville, May 22, at the Division Review. Part of the highly-anticipated Week of the Eagles festivities, 101st Airborne Division Vietnam Veterans and their Family members participated in the ceremony and stood proudly at the reviewing stand to watch the troops pass. The Walraths surveyed the Soldiers in formation, and thoroughly enjoyed seeing their son -- Lt. Col. Bryan Walrath, Fort Campbell Warrior Transition Battalion commander -- lead his troops across the Division Parade Field. The reunion of sorts was sweeter for the Walraths, since the Week of the Eagles theme "Remembering the 101st in Vietnam -- Building on the Legacy of Courage and Strength" brought back memories of how they met. The pair first crossed paths during the Vietnam War, in the middle of Burt's Army career. Gail was in Vietnam working as a civilian counselor, one of just 12 women based at Cu Chi.
