82nd Airborne Mobilizes to Iraq, 750+ Troops In Route

The following is from the Facebook page of the 82nd Airborne.

Today, hundreds of All American Paratroopers boarded United States Air Force C17 Globemaster aircraft and headed to the U.S. Central Command area of operations.

We are incredibly proud of what 1st Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division has been able to do over the last 18 hours.

These Paratroopers are focused, disciplined, trained, and ready for anything that lies ahead of them.

The remainder of the 1st Brigade Combat Team, and elements of the 82nd Airborne Division are postured and ready to go at a moments notice.

My family has major ties to the 82nd Airborne. My Grandfather was in the 82nd in WWII, receiving the Purple Heart, Bronze Star, among other medals. Our family sends our prayers to our brave warriors of the 82nd!


All the Way
