WASHINGTON -- The Department of the Army announced today the summer of 2018 deployment of the 101st Airborne Division Sustainment Brigade stationed at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, to Afghanistan.

The 101st Airborne Sustainment Brigade Headquarters and Special Troops Battalion will replace the 3rd Infantry Division Sustainment Brigade Headquarters and Special Troops Battalion as part of a regular rotation of forces to support Operation Freedom's Sentinel.

"The 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) Sustainment Brigade is highly trained and ready to answer the call to sustain U.S. and coalition forces operating in Afghanistan," said Col. Stan Sliwinski, the brigade commander. "This brigade is no stranger to Afghanistan, as this will be our fifth rotation there since 2001. We take great pride in our ability to provide world-class sustainment support, and we are excited for the opportunity to continue this effort while deployed."
