FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. – The temperature was hovering around 10 degrees early in the morning on Tuesday, January 28 at Campbell Army Airfield but that only slightly cooled down the excitement as 280 Screaming Eagles returned to Fort Campbell.

The Soldiers with Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) and the 101st Sustainment Brigade were welcomed home after their deployment to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

The Soldiers stepped off the plane to the cheers of family and friends. The hangar was filled with visitors but not all of them came outside in the bitter cold. Some chose to stay inside and welcome their loved one after they entered the hangar.

One Soldier, First Lieutenant Matt Barnes was glad to be returning to his family and Fort Campbell. ”It just feels great to be home, I missed my family a lot and it feels good to know we did a good job over there and it just feels great to be back,” said Barnes.
