Holly Petraeus returns to Fort Campbell

FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) - A familiar name is returning to Fort Campbell today. Holly Petraeus is due at the base on the Kentucky-Tennessee state line.

Her husband, Gen. David Petraeus, once led the famed 101st Airborne Division to battle, and Holly Petraeus is now leading the fight against unscrupulous lenders and practices taking advantage of military families.

Petraeus was selected to establish the Office of Service Member Affairs at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. While at Fort Campbell today, she'll hear from soldiers and families about their concerns about predatory business practices. The purpose is to help troops know where to get financial education and help federal and state agencies improve consumer protection measures.

Joining the discussion will be Tennessee Attorney General Bob Cooper and Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway.
