FORT CAMPBELL

 

In August 1971 the Brigade finished its' deployment to Fort Campbell, Kentucky. During six plus years of combat, over 1600 Sky Soldiers lost their lives. This was the longest period of combat for any unit since the revolutionary war. The Brigade completed the only line combat jump in the Vietnam War. Now came a hard time in Sky Soldiers history, a period of readjustment into a peace time Army. Many old sky soldiers were released from active duty within 24 hours of returning to the states. Those with one year or more left on duty stayed as the Brigade was then filled with replacements, most non-combatants. The transitation was rough to say the least.
