Website Summary   by:Angel48    
ª
 
A baby boom is in the air for soldiers that have recently returned home from Iraq. Approximately 210 babies are being born a month. That''s nearly twice the usual number, more are expected at other area hospitals. It''s not uncommon to have an increase in births after the soldiers return home. So far this is the largest that Fort Campbell has seen.

Approximately 19,000 soldiers returned home to Fort Stewart, Ga in 2006; the hospital saw a
baby boom nine months later. Delivering more than 100 babies a month that was a large jump from the previous year. Fort Hood saw an increase of 289 in March 2006 well above the average of 213.

Many times the Father is back in Iraq before the baby is born. Fort Campbell should close to 2,300 this year, up from 1,352 last year. It is expected to continue thru December. About 20% of the Mother''s are active-duty soldiers. After the babies are born they are exempt from deployment for 4 months.
