Soldiers assigned to the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) returned to Fort Campbell Friday, following a deployment in response to the fight against COVID-19.
Officials report 18 Soldiers with the 101st Division Sustainment Brigade’s Forward Assessment Sustainment Team deployed April 14 and spent more than a month in New Jersey, coordinating and providing support throughout the northeast region of the country.
Over the past month the Soldiers helped receive, process, and move supplies, equipment, and personnel in critical areas affected by the pandemic.
Upon return, the service members were immediately placed under a precautionary quarantine under medical supervision at Fort Campbell. An official welcome home event is being planned for the near future after the quarantine is complete.
