FORT CAMPBELL, Ky.
The 101st Airborne Division will conduct its first brigade-sized Air Assault training mission in more than a decade.
This operation at Fort Campbell will also validate the standards and procedures of the Division's 'Gold Book' that defines the Army's standards of Air Assault operations. Soldiers from 3rd Brigade Combat Team "Rakkasans" and the 101st Combat Aviation Brigade "Wings of Destiny," will conduct the exercises.
The training mission is scheduled for Tuesday, but could be moved to Wednesday in the event of inclement weather.
