Description

Provides a lasting homage filled with photographs and memoirs of STRIKE Soldiers, past and present, from its founding in August 1917 through the conflict in Afghanistan.

Combined Task Force STRIKE was the military unit selected by the International Security Assistance Force to be the main surge brigade to defeat Taliban in its Kandahar homeland from 2010-2011 in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

In March 2008, the Headquarters (and Special Troops Battalion) 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) (also known as the Screaming Eagles based at Fort Campbell, Kentucky) joined the 4th Brigade Combat Team and the 101st Sustainment Brigade in Afghanistan in support of Operation enduring Freedom.

As Combined Joint Task Force 101 (CJTF-101), the Division Headquarters was supported by many attached Coalition units and was responsible for an area of operation the size of Pennsylvania designated as Regional Command-East. Composed of 14 provinces, including much of the volatile border region between Afghanistan and Pakistan, as well as the Hindu Kush and Afghan Control Highlands, Regional Command-East were posed unique and difficult set of challenges unlike anything previously experienced.

The Soldiers of CJTF-101 thrived in their role as both Soldier/diplomats and warriors. CJTF-101 helped restore the Afghan people's confidence and trust in their government, while improving their quality of life through more than 2500 innovative development projects. As warriors, CJTF-101 aggressively trained Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) and, side-by-side, relentlessly pursued insurgent groups wherever they could be found.
