Fort Campbell -- Path to Wings

  Cadet Jeff Garner is no stranger to Fort Campbell.
   Having graduated from Fort Campbell High School in 2011, Garner fondly considers the installation his home. His Family lived in the Werner Park housing community during the time his mother was assigned to 101st Combat Aviation Brigade, 101st Airborne Division, which encompassed most of his high school years.
  During his time as a Falcon, Garner played both defensive end and running back for the 2009 state champion FCHS football team and participated in the JROTC program. After graduation, his Family found themselves relocating again, this time to Fort Sill, Okla. 
  "We've been moving all my life, even before my mom joined the military," said Garner. "You think it would make you more enclosed, not wanting to build relationships because you move so much, but it actually makes you even more open, meet more people and get out there and network and build relationships. It just makes you more resilient."
