The 82d Airborne Division Association Inc. is trying to locate all of the veterans that have passed through this division in the past 66 years. They need to record the veteran’s deeds for history and for the younger generations.
The 82nd Airborne Division has served in Afghanistan and Iraq for the past few years and will return for another tour of duty. This is the most decorated division in today’s military.
There are 100 civilian chapters across the U.S. which serve both military and civilians. With 34,000 members, they hold regular meetings, annual picnics, dinner dances, mini-reunions, an annual national convention, local parades and sponsor school programs on our airborne history.
Their membership has veterans from the 11th, 13th, 17th, 82nd, 101st and today’s special forces. Combat is not a requirement, only the wings veterans earned through hard work and determination.
