426th Brigade Support Battalion, 1st BCT, Fort Campbell, KY

426th Brigade Support Battalion, 1st BCT, Fort Campbell, KY OFFICIAL 426TH BSB PAGE- 426th Brigade Support Battalion is a part of the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division. The 426th BSB consists of a headquarters company, a supply company, a maintenance company, and a medical company.

"TO THE TASK!!" 426th Brigade Support Battalion is a part of the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division. The BSB provides brigade level logistics and HSS to the 1st BCT. Forward Support Companies of the 426th are also assigned to the Brigades subordinate battalions. G Company is assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 320th Field Artillery. The 426th Brigade Support Battalion was first constituted 23 July 1918 in the National Army as the 326th Supply Train and assigned to the 101st Division. The unit was redesignated on 23 March 1925 as the 101st Division Quartermaster Train and reorganized and redesignated on 1 July 1936 as the 426th Quartermaster Regiment, remaining assigned to the 101st Division. On 18 June 1948 it was redesignated as the 101st Airborne Division Quartermaster Company and on 1 July 1956 as the 426th Airborne Quartermaster Company. The next reorganization and redesignation came on 25 April 1957, when the unit became the 426th Supply and Transportation Company, an element of the 101st Airborne Division, which was again reorganized and redesignated 3 February 1964 as Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 426th Supply and Transportation Battalion, and remained assigned to the 101st Airborne Division (organic elements concurrently organized for new and existing units). This unit was inactivated 21 May 1965 at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. It was redesignated 1 July 1968 as the 426th Supply and Services Battalion and activated in Vietnam. The reactivated unit served until 17 September 1986 when it was reorganized and redesignated as the 426th Supply and Transport Battalion. On 16 April 1994 it was reorganized and redesignated as the 426th Support Battalion, being later redesignated as the 426th Forward Support Battalion. The move to the modular force structure by the US Army saw the unit again redesignated as the 426th Brigade Support Battalion, attached to the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division, reassigned from its previous position as part of the 101st Division Support Command.

Congratulations to SPC Watkins from HHC “High-Rollers” for her re-enlistment to continue her service in the Army! She is a Culinary Specialist (92G) and works at the Snipes DFAC. SPC Watkins became a Taskmaster in June of 2018, and joined the Army because she had the goal of becoming a detective in the future. SPC Watkins is currently studying Forensic Science through the University of Maryland in her off time, and will be reclassing to an MOS closely aligned with her career aspirations. Congratulations!

Additionally, The Taskmaster Culinary team took advantage of an opportunity to try out for the division Culinary Team. SPC Watkins, SPC Mitchell, and PFC Reese utilized a mix of proteins and ingredients to create plates that represent a diverse background of their heritage and culinary experiences.

Congratulations to our three new Taskmaster Expert Field Medical Badge (EFMB) graduates! Each completed pre-requisite training events, a week of standardization training, and a week of physically and mentally-demanding testing. Each of them have worked extremely hard to earn this highly sought after recognition of expertise which also has a high attrition rate.

CPT Josh Kniss (Physical Therapist)
1LT Joe Shecter (Executive Officer)
2LT Kelley Crennan (Treatment Platoon Leader)

In addition, CPT Kniss was the honor graduate for placing first among each of the candidates.

The EFMB is a special skills badge that indicates a medical professional is capable of overcoming the obstacles to make them an expert in their craft. This badge is the non-combat equivalent of the Combat Medical Badge and is awarded to medical series MOS’ who successfully complete a set of qualification tests, including both written and performance portions that indicate them as an expert in their craft. The EFMB is known for its adherence to its testing standards and, as such, requires strict attention to detail from candidates in order to receive a "GO" on its combat testing lanes. The final event is a 12 mile ruck march within three hours. The overall pass rate generally stands around 20% making it a prestigious and hard to obtain award.

Well done and congratulations to all three of you! You’ve made Company C “Cold Blooded,” and the Taskmaster Battalion proud!

As efforts continue for Operation Clean Eagle, Soldiers are making a difference all over the Bastogne footprint at Fort Campbell. Today, Taskmasters continued to consolidate usable and unusable items for turn in, and ran the Free Issue Area (FIA). The FIA is a consolidation point for the brigade where Taskmasters and Soldiers supporting from across the brigade can sort, organize, and inventory items from each battalion. Their efforts allow turn in to the proper organizations and units on post.

1st Brigade Combat Team leaders, including the Taskmasters listed below, executed a 30 hour Situational Training Exercise in the mountains of Dahlonega, GA within the Chattahoochee National Forrest. They executed tactical tasks to conduct raids on multiple objectives to accomplish their overall mission. Additionally, they will all run Mount Toccoa which is also famously known as Currahee Mountain.

This event incorporated aspects of the storied history of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assualt), Bastogne Brigade, and the history of each battalion. Our unit is proud of our Taskmasters, our leaders, our Soldiers, our family, and of our history.

Join us in congratulating SGT Lopez for his promotion to sergeant from specialist during rotation 20-10 at the Joint Readiness Training Center (JRTC) at Fort Polk Louisiana.

SGT Lopez is a member of the Headquarters and Headquarters Company (HHC) “High-Rollers” and is a Motor Transport Operator (88M). SGT Lopez became a Taskmaster in November 2017, and joined the Army because he wanted to create opportunities for college and to serve.

Sergeants are responsible for the daily caretaking, training, equipping, physical appearance, fitness, and overall well-being of the soldiers assigned under them.

Non-Commissioned Officers obtain their position of authority by promotion through the enlisted ranks. This Taskmaster has proven his ability to lead Soldiers in any condition whether in garrison or deployed in austere environments across the globe.

SGT Lopez is an excellent member of the Taskmaster team. We look forward to seeing his continued progression in his career.

Congratulations!

During JRTC 20-10, convoys weren’t the only method of conducting sustainment missions. Aerial resupply operations using UH-60 and CH-47 aircraft with sling loads were conducted from the BSA throughout JRTC with vital resources. These operations allowed Soldiers on the front lines to continue engaging geronimo and ultimately helped pave the way for mission success.

The video below was captured utilizing a UH-60 to deliver MREs via a 5k cargo net to units across the Bastogne Brigade. 1LT Sliwinski from Company A “Workhorse,” led and supervised the lift while SPC Villa attached the load to the aircraft, and SPC Mattox stabilized the load. The load was rigged by SPC Koulibaly and SPC Mattox, and inspected by 1LT Sliwinski.

Additionally, as the premier Air Assault Division in the world, Air Assault missions were conducted into and during JRTC. These included sling loaded HMMWVs, trailers, and various other needed equipment. 1LT MacKinnon from HHC “High Rollers,” conducted HPZ operations for the first Air Assault conducted during JRTC 20-10.

We are proud of our Taskmasters and our capabilities which they execute extraordinarily.

Taskmasters supporting the Bastogne Brigade in a contested environment with geronimo. Our Soldiers expertly sustained the force while simultaneously repelling constant attacks from enemy elements from the ground, air, artillery, and gas. To mitigate the effects of enemy attacks, Taskmasters established fortified fighting positions, and jumped the BSA and cluster locations multiple times throughout this successful JRTC rotation. Lots more to follow!

IDK if y'all allow folks to do this, or not, but I'm quite positive there is a superior who needs to do some disciplinary action for making y'all look bad. Last I checked our armed forces don't conduct themselves like this. More images in comments.
