The city is most proud to be the hometown of Ft. Campbell, being adjacent to the Ft. Campbell Army Base, home of the 101st Airborne Division and the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment. We welcome the diversity of families from all over the United States and hope they will make Oak Grove their home.
