Col. Dellinger named 101st chief of staff
Col. David ďBuckĒ Dellinger, garrison commander at Fort Campbell, will pass his responsibilities to Col. James R. Salome, as Dellinger has been selected and appointed to serve as the 101st Airborne Divisionís next chief of staff.

The announcement was made earlier Thursday during what was planned as a farewell ceremony for Dellingerís wife, Cricket Dellinger, at T.C. Freemanís Hopkinsville home. The farewell ceremony hosted by the chamberís Military Affairs Committee quickly became a celebration for Col. Dellingerís promotion, as the couple will remain at Fort Campbell and Col. Dellinger, who was going to retire, will now continue his career in the Army in a new position.
