On behalf of Maj. Gen. JP McGee, commanding general of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) and Fort Campbell, and our entire military community, we congratulate the Department of Defense Education Activity as they celebrate 75th years of excellence.

DODEA’s administrators and staff understand what’s important to military Families and their students, which is high quality education in a supportive, dependable and stable environment.

These dedicated professionals are experts in dealing with the challenges and hardship unique to military children, like permanent change of station moves and deployments.

DODEA’s programs and strategies keep parents and students connected during periods of separation and allow our service members to continue their focus on our nation’s defense.

Fort Campbell Families are the beneficiaries of this exceptional school system. Fort Campbell’s elementary, middle and high schools are among the best, most academically competitive in the area.

Fort Campbell High School is one of only two DODEA stateside high schools specifically serving the Army population. Over the last five years, Fort Campbell High School achieved a 100% graduation rate, and graduates earned a total of $27.8M in college scholarships.

DODEA continues to deliver on its mission of educate and empower military-connected students to succeed in a dynamic world. The U.S. Department of Education recently recognized Fort Campbell’s Andre Lucas Elementary as a National Blue Ribbon School for 2021. We are beaming with pride that Andre Lucas Elementary is one of only three DODEA schools, and one of 325 schools nationally, to be recognized for their academic excellence.

This is due in large part to DODEA’s dedicated service to our Families through conflict, wars, natural disasters, 9/11, COVID-19 and more. DODEA has been a sustained partner.

We here at Fort Campbell congratulate and commend you on the 75 years of contributing to Soldier readiness and improving the quality of life for military Families here at Fort Campbell and around the world.

Congratulations! Air Assault!
