One of the Army's best-known combat units is gearing up for war.

The Blackhawk helicopters that we showed you Wednesday at the Albany airport were the lead element for the 101st Airborne Division. Yesterday, a Fort Campbell spokesman would only say that the aircraft was on its way to the port of Jacksonville, Florida.

Now, a spokesman said the air assault division is heading overseas for an unspecified mission. The military called the move a "prudent" step.

The number of soldiers being deployed was not disclosed.
