ARMED FORCES DAY 5K WALK/RUN
Saturday, May 18 at
Crescent Springs adopted the Army’s 101st Airborne, 1st Division, 320th Field Artillery Regiment (Golf Battery) based at Fort Campbell, KY in 2006. The 3 other Batteries in the Regiment were adopted by Villa Hills, Lakeside Park and Erlanger, and together, all 4 cities have supported the 1-320th FAR through 3 deployments to Iraq and 1 to Afghanistan. The soldiers returned from their Afghanistan deployment in April 2011, and are currently home at Fort Campbell.
Resident & Councilperson Lou Hartfiel
serves on the ASA Adopt a Unit committee, along with representatives from
the other 3 cities. The purpose of ASA Adopt a Unit is to support the
soldiers; the 1-320th receives support not only during overseas
deployments, but year-round support for the soldiers and families at Fort
Campbell from their adoptive cities. City money is NOT used for support of
the 1-320th; it is funded only through the generous donations
from residents and local businesses.
