FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) — Some soldiers at Fort Campbell on the Kentucky-Tennessee border are preparing to deploy to Europe.

Deployment of Headquarters, 101st Airborne Division and the 2nd Brigade Combat Team will begin as soon as this summer, the 101st said.

The Army announced in March that about 300 soldiers from Fort Knox’s Victory Corps were being deployed to Germany and Poland to bolster U.S. Army forces in Europe. The Corps already had soldiers stationed in Poland.

The units from Fort Campbell will join V Corps in support of the Army’s commitment to Europe and NATO allies in response to the invasion of Ukraine, the 101st said.
