About 400 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) soldiers will deploy from Fort Campbell, Kentucky, to Iraq this summer to bolster Iraqi Security Forces at a northern base called a “springboard” for the planned offensive to retake Mosul from ISIS.

The soldiers from the 2nd Brigade Combat Team will join another 1,300 soldiers from the same unit who deployed to Iraq in the spring, the Army said in a statement last Friday.
