WASHINGTON -- The Department of the Army announced today the spring 2018 deployment of the 101st Airborne Division Headquarters stationed at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, to Afghanistan.

The 101st Airborne Division Headquarters will replace 3rd Infantry Division Headquarters as part of a regular rotation of forces to support Operation Freedom's Sentinel.

"The 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) remains, as it did 75 years ago when it was forged during the maelstrom of World War II, ready to answer the call to fight and win our nation's wars," said Maj. Gen. Andrew P. Poppas, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) commander. "This will be the division headquarters' fourth deployment to Afghanistan in the last decade. We know the terrain, we know our partners and we know our mission."
