The 101st Airborne Division is none other than the legendary Screaming Eagles. It’s their 55th annual reunion this week, and Clarksville is full up. The unit’s based in Ft. Campbell, Kentucky, which is located at the edge of town. From WWII to the present, they’ve seen some of the toughest fighting there is to see. It shows on the faces and in the voices of the people I’ve bumped into here.

  1. After watching the HBO Series “Band of Brothers”, I have been obsessed with the 101st! Have read “Currahee!”, and currently reading “Beyond Valor”. The sacrifices these men made and the bravery they exuded is inspiring. A true story of heroes!
    I personally want to thank ALL Vets for all sacrifices they made in keeping our freedom!
