FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) -- Leaders from an aviation brigade based at Fort Campbell, Ky., will brief the media about their first 100 days of their deployment to Afghanistan.

The 101st Combat Aviation Brigade, 101st Airborne Division deployed to Afghanistan this year to provide helicopter support throughout two regions of the country, including where other units from Fort Campbell are currently deployed.

The brigade commander, Col. Paul Bontrager, will give an update via teleconference on Monday on the brigade's progress working with the Afghan national security forces and NATO forces in Regional Command North and Regional Command East.

About 6,000 soldiers from the post on the Tennessee-Kentucky state line are currently deployed to Afghanistan. More soldiers will be deploying next year.
