The 101st Airborne Division headquarters received notice Wednesday of its spring 2018 deployment to Afghanistan and is ready to answer the call.
According to a news release, Major General Andrew Poppas says, “The 101st Airborne Division remains, as it did 75 years ago when it was forged during World War II, ready to answer the call to fight and win our nation’s wars. This will be the division headquarters’ fourth deployment to Afghanistan in the last decade. We know the terrain, we know our partners and we know our mission.”
They will replace the 3rd Infantry Division headquarters as part of a regular rotation of forces to support Operation Freedom’s Sentinel. **
