- The 101st Airborne Division is once again answering the
call to serve in Iraq.
- Around 20,000 soldiers got their final briefing Friday
afternoon at Ft. Campbell. It's been two years since the division was last
deployed to Iraq.
- Soldiers will board planes and be heading off Friday
to do numerous duties, including helping train Iraqi law enforcement. Families
took the afternoon to say goodbye.
- This is just the 5th time in the history of the 101st
that the entire division has been deployed all at once. The soldiers will
be gone a year.
