Fort Campbell Troops Prepare for Deployment

By Melissa Painter | 

Fort Campbell soldiers are taking care of loose ends as they expect orders for deployment.

Many soldiers are getting anthrax and small pox shots. In financial matters, troops are completing their wills and life insurance.

These are the grim realities of preparing for war.

The Airborne Division is also packing up more than 4,000 pieces of equipment to be sent by rail to a Florida port. The equipment will then be sent overseas.

Soldiers do not know where they are going or when they are leaving. They simply know they need to be ready.
