FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) — An engineer battalion has a new home at Fort Campbell.
The 326th Engineer Battalion moved to the military post on the Kentucky-Tennessee state line from Fort Hood in Texas. The battalion, which is known as the Sapper Eagles, is joining the 101st Airborne Division's 1st Brigade Combat Team.
The battalion joins the brigade's ranks before it integrates with the brigade's 1st Special Troops Battalion into the 326th Brigade Engineer Battalion in April.
The soldiers held a patch changing ceremony on Friday at Fort Campbell.
