Fort Campbell plans realignment ceremony

Associated Press

FORT CAMPBELL - The Rakkasans are getting ready to welcome the White Currahees.

The 3rd Brigade Combat Team of the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell is set to hold a ceremony on Wednesday to officially recognize the addition of the 2nd Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment.

The event will represent a full circle as elements of the 506th again join with the 3rd Brigade, 187th Infantry Regiment "Rakkasans" and 3rd Brigade Combat Team.

The two units served together in Vietnam linked up on Hamburger Hill for the final assault May 18-20, 1969.

The addition will also make the 3rd Brigade Combat Team the first fully transformed Brigade Combat Team under the Division's transformation process.
