Week of the Eagles 2021 is a go! If you are planning to visit Fort Campbell during the Week of the Eagles, there are some things you need to know. First, access to the post for Week of the Eagles will be as normal. That means if you are a military retiree, your Retiree ID Card will get you onto the installation at any gate without a pass. Simply pull up to the gate, present the bar code on the back of the ID to the Gate Guard, the guard will scan it, then flip your ID over so they can see the photo to compare. Each person in the auto will also have to provide an ID or Driver License unless they are under the age of 18. Fort Campbell is a U.S. Military Federal Installation, NO concealed or open carry personally owned weapons are permitted.
For others entering the Gates who do not possess a valid military ID, Fort Campbell has two visitor control centers; one at T.C Freeman Gate (Main Gate) and one at Gate 7 (Airfield Gate), both are accessible from Hwy 41A, Fort Campbell Boulevard. If you do not have a valid military ID, you will have to stop at one of these Visitor Centers to obtain a pass. A VA ID alone will not gain you access to the post without a pass. When you enter the Visitor Center to obtain a pass, you must bring vehicle registration, driver license and proof of insurance. The post will be very busy during Week of the Eagles, come early and expect some delays to ensure you reach your event on time.
Current COVID-19 policies on Fort Campbell are if you’ve had complete COVID-19 Vaccinations (+ 2 Weeks) you will not have to wear a mask unless you are at a medical treatment facility, vaccination site or one of the Child Development Centers or schools. All others who have not had vaccinations are asked to wear a mask. Social distance when possible and wash hands frequently. Outside of the gates of Fort Campbell, the areas in Clarksville, TN and Oak Grove and Hopkinsville are largely open at 100% capacity, although some private businesses or municipal activities and offices will still ask that a mask is worn.
We’ve attached a copy of the Week of the Eagles Schedule and a strip map with the street address of the more popular activities. This is to assist you in using a smart phone navigation app to navigate the post if you are unfamiliar. There has been a lot of recent construction in the past several years on Fort Campbell and some landmarks that you may remember may no longer be visible. The Visitor Welcome Center will be at the Pratt Museum for Week of the Eagles. There will be representatives from the units to answer your questions or provide directions if necessary.
If you have not yet secured lodging for your visit there is still time, although some hotels may be near capacity or booked. There are many hotels in the area that are a very short drive from Fort Campbell and more information can be found at the following links about visiting Clarksville, TN, Oak Grove and Hopkinsville, KY.
