Statement Of Sen. Lamar Alexander On 101st Airborne

Posted on July 24, 2003

I am grateful the Army has announced the 101st Airborne Division will come home early next year. Tennesseans and all Americans are very proud of the Screaming Eagles and everything they've been doing in Iraq and Afghanistan. During my hearing on military families at Fort Campbell in June, I learned how hard troop deployment can be on military families. Many families have been asking when will their loved ones be coming home. Now we have an answer. And while we all wish it could be sooner, we look forward to their safe return.
