Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- More Kentucky-based soldiers are headed overseas. 

About 400 soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell are deploying to Iraq this summer. They will join the 1,300 soldiers from the same unit that were sent to fight in the spring. 

The post on the Kentucky/Tennessee border says it's part of an increase in authorized troop levels in Iraq. 

The soldiers are being referred to as the "Strike Ready Force."
