  • Retired Sergeant Major Soldier for life

    Oct 18, 2013

    It's 6:20 a.m. on a typical Fort Campbell morning. As Soldiers begin to fall in formation and prepare for the strenuous physical training session that normally begins their day, they may or may not notice an additional member to their ranks. Dressed in his PT uniform and sporting a fresh Army regulation haircut, this "guest" could easily go under the radar during the initial morning darkness; however, eventually his enthusiasm would give him away. The next thing the Soldiers may also notice is that this new addition to the formation is a bit older than the average Soldier in the formation -- a lot older. Nevertheless, as the Soldiers hit the pavement running, so does their 83-year-old visitor, joining them as they sound off with cadence. While this guest may be a stranger to some, this new member to their ranks is really no stranger at all. Retired Sgt. Maj. Dayton Herrington spent 16 and a half of his 30 years of service in the 101st Airborne Division and, as a Screaming Eagle, has had many rendezvous with destiny -- a destiny he foresaw at a very young age.

  • Market Garden commemorated with living history

    Sep 27, 2013

    Since 1945, the people of Holland set aside a day in September for reflection and the celebration of their hard-earned freedom. They look back upon a time in 1944, when Allied forces pushed through the odds in an attempt to upend a German stronghold. They remember Operation Market Garden, the largest airborne military operation the world had ever known. Though the attempt to infiltrate enemy lines was ultimately deemed a failure to the tune of more than 17,000 Allied soldiers lost, Holland was liberated nearly a year later. Since that time, the efforts made during the operation have not been forgotten. Much of this gratitude is shared with the 101st Airborne Division, one of two American airborne units charged with the monumental task. For Dan Peterson, director of Fort Campbell's Don F. Pratt Museum, it is a busy time, as he has helped to organize a commemorative living history display for the past eight years.

  • Letter from Maj. Gen. James C. McConville - September 2013

    Sep 18, 2013

    Greetings from Afghanistan. Having officially passed the mid-point of the Division's deployment to Afghanistan, it's worthwhile to reflect a bit on where we were and where we are now. At the beginning of Operation Enduring Freedom, Afghanistan was once a country run by the Taliban, a country that provided safe haven to al Qaeda, a country that had no real infrastructure or public services, and was a country with no security forces to protect and defend its population from the horrors of war and oppression. Since then, Afghanistan and its people have come a long way. Your Screaming Eagles continue to perform a critical role in the success of our mission, supporting the Afghan National Security Forces as they lead the effort to secure their nation for the first time since this conflict began nearly twelve years ago.
