Hickman. Paratroopers of the 2nd Battalion, 325th Airborne Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, attended the David E.

  • Resources assist Families during tough financial times

    Aug 23, 2013

    The recent reduction of mandatory furlough days for civilian Department of Defense employees has had some Fort Campbell employees breathing a proverbial sigh of relief. During this difficult time, they have had to do more with less. On July 23, an amendment to the appropriations bill was approved by Congress that would spare civilian DoD employees from mandatory furloughs in the next fiscal year. However, cuts will have to be made elsewhere in the budget for the department to stay within its spending limits. Unlike Congress, Soldiers have the ability to plan ahead and access valuable resources that will help provide financial security. With uncertain financial times ahead, it is imperative that those who would be affected by potential defense budget cuts brace themselves and make a spending plan that works for them. During these difficult economic times, military benefits and resources will be more important than ever to those that receive them.

English Jr. Army Education Center.

  • Equality through the ranks

    Aug 29, 2013

    "Now, therefore, be it resolved, the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, that August 26th of each year is designated as Women's Equality Day, and the President is authorized and requested to issue a proclamation annually in commemoration of that day in 1920, on which the women of America were first given the right to vote, and that day in 1970, on which a nationwide demonstration for women's rights took place." -- Joint Resolution of Congress, 1971, Designating Aug. 26 of each year as Women's Equality Day The fight for equal treatment among genders is a thread that can be found throughout the fabric of history -- and seen most prominently in times of battle, revolution and change. Battles within battles are the reason the military has its own unique chapters in the story that is women's equality. Female roles in the Army have gone through a catalog of changes -- evolving from positions of support to those of leadership. It's a process that began during the piecemeal formation of a functioning military during the revolutionary war, when women like Nancy Hart, Margaret McCauley (better known as Molly Pitcher) and Deborah Samson risked life and limb to aid Soldiers, gather enemy information and even sneak their way to the front lines. Others offered their support to the military by serving as cooks and seamstresses.
