MORE ON THE 82nd AIRBORNE DIVISION:
The 82nd Airborne Division is an airborne infantry division of the U.S. Army, specializing in parachute assualt operations into denied areas with a U.S. Department of Defense requirement to “respond to crisis contingencies anywhere in the world within 18 hours”. Based at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, the 82nd Airborne Division is part of the XVIII Airborne Corps. The 82nd Airborne Division is the U.S. Army’s most strategically mobile division. More recently, the 82nd Airborne has been conducting operations in Iraq, advising and assisting Iraqi Security Forces.
The division was constituted, originally as the 82nd Division, in the National Army on 5 August 1917, shortly after the American entry into WWI. It was organized on 25 August 1917, at Camp Gordon, Georgia and later served with distinction on the Western Front in the final months of WWI. Since its initial members came from all 48 states, the division acquired the nickname All-American, which is the basis for its famed “AA” on the shoulder patch. The division later served in WWII where, in August 1942, it was reconstituted as the first airborne division of the U.S. Army and fought in numerous campaigns during the war.
