FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) – Dozens of soldiers based at Fort Campbell have returned after being deployed in the Northeast to support coronavirus relief efforts.
Fort Campbell said in a statement that about 40 soldiers assigned to the 501st Medical Company returned Saturday to the Army post on the Kentucky-Tennessee line. They deployed on April 18 to provide medical treatment, behavioral health care, COVID-19 screening and laboratory testing to Defense Department service members in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.
Upon returning, the service members began quarantining as a safety precaution. As soon as their quarantine is complete, the post plans an official welcome home ceremony.
