Gulf War Reunion

It’s hard to believe, but it’s the 25th Anniversary of the Persian Gulf War when the 101st Screaming Eagles became known as the “Lightning of the Storm.” More than 200 former Screaming Eagles gathered from across the United States with State and local elected officials, Civilian Aides to the Secretary of the Army and other esteemed guests to remember the contributions of the 101st to the victory in the Persian Gulf War.  The gathering in Clarksville, TN on Wednesday, February 24th was on the anniversary of longest and deepest air assault in history when the 101st moved deep into Iraq to cut the lines of communication and block the retreat of Iraqi forces. The Veteran Screaming Eagles included 17 retired General Officers who all served with the Division in the Persian Gulf.  The event was hosted by the Fort Campbell Historical Foundation’s GEN (Ret.) Gary Luck, the 18th Airborne Corps Commander for the Persian Gulf war, Fort Campbell Historical Foundation Director CSM (Ret.) Robert Nichols and Civilian Aid to the Secretary of the Army, Mr. Jack Turner of Clarksville.  The dinner program featured remarks by Key Note Speaker GEN. (Ret.) J.H. Binford Peay III and entertainment by renowned patriot and country singer Mr. Lee Greenwood.  The event was an amazing opportunity to see those with whom they served and gather together command teams  and friends from across the division that had not been together in many cases since 1991. Many thanks to all those who put the event together and made it such a great event for Screaming Eagles to attend.
