Although constituted August 5, 1917, the 82nd Airborne Division was officially manned 20 days later on August 25. This is the day on which we celebrate its birth. One-hundred years later, we are still All American, All the way. We are ready to jump tonight and win tomorrow’s fight as we honor the legacy passed down by those who paved the way for us since our inception.
In Episode 31, Joe Buccino and Kenneth Clarke bring the conversation they had in episode 30 about the Division’s Century of Service, full circle. They address the essence of what it means to be a Paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division then, now and in years to come.
