  • Installation to honor Gold Star Families

    Oct 18, 2013

    During the days of World War I, men and women serving in the U.S. military became symbolized by blue stars. A blue star flag in the window of a home let passers-by know the Family inside had a loved one serving overseas. In the unfortunate event of that loved one dying in service, the loss was symbolized by a gold star, superimposed on the blue one. Today, the surviving Families of fallen Soldiers are known as Gold Star Families. Each year, Fort Campbell, like many other military installations, sets aside a time to honor these Families and thank them for the sacrifices they have made. Last year, Maj. Gen. James C. McConville, commanding general of the 101st Airborne Division and Fort Campbell, determined Gold Star Family Appreciation Day was something that could be built upon to show greater support, and the day was revised to a full week. This year, Fort Campbell will continue the tradition of Gold Star Family Appreciation Week, Monday through Oct. 26, with a series of special events to include an installation tour, group dining venture and wreath laying ceremony.

  • Auto, motorcycle accidents decreasing

    Oct 18, 2013

    In fiscal year 2013, Fort Campbell saw a 50 percent reduction in auto accidents and 40 percent drop in motorcycle accidents both on and off post. Safety officials credit the drop to greater command oversight, as well as Soldier participation in training programs. "It's a combination of the command input and management of their troops, plus the training programs that we have going on -- the Army training programs," said Fort Campbell's Army Traffic Safety Training Program Manager Lonnie Scott. "The Army Traffic Safety Training Program, in particular. We have the motorcycle training, and we also have the POV training that we provide for those Soldiers. I think that has a pretty good influence -- especially in the motorcycle side of the house for us." Recently released figures from the U.S. Army Combat Readiness/Safety Center show accident fatalities decreased 9 percent.

  • 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.
