Fort Campbell soldiers returning from West Africa

FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) – Nearly 200 soldiers are returning to Fort Campbell this week from West Africa, where they have been helping in the effort to fight Ebola.

The post said those returning include the 101st Airborne Division’s deputy commanding general for support, Brig. Gen. Frank W. Tate.

Fort Campbell is expecting about 190 soldiers to return Tuesday to the post along the Kentucky-Tennessee state line.

The soldiers have completed a 21-day period of controlled monitoring of their health at Fort Bliss, Texas.
