FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) -- A White House spokesman says President George W. Bush plans to eat lunch with Fort Campbell soldiers when he visits the post on Tuesday.

White House spokesman Trey Bohn says Bush is visiting the Army post on the Kentucky-Tennessee border just before the Thanksgiving holiday to talk about the global war on terror and thank the soldiers for their service and sacrifice.

The post is home the 101st Airborne Division, which has deployed to Iraq twice since 2003.

Post spokeswoman Cathy Gramling says thousands of soldiers have returned since October from a 15-month deployment to Iraq.

Bush also visited Fort Campbell in 2004 to welcome home troops who helped invade the country.
