82nd Airborne Division

The 82nd Airborne Division is an airborne infantry division based at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. It is a subordinate unit of the XVIII Airborne Corps.

The 82nd Division was constituted in the National Army on 5 August 1917, and was organized on 25 August 1917, at Camp Gordon, Georgia. Since its initial members came from all 48 states, the unit acquired the nickname “All-American", which is the basis for its famed “AA” shoulder patch.Famous soldiers of the division include Sergeant Alvin C. York, General James M. Gavin, Dave Bald Eagle (grandson of Chief White Bull), Senator Strom Thurmond (325GIR in World War II), Senator Jack Reed and Congressman Patrick Murphy (the first Iraq War veteran elected to Congress.) State Representative Bryan Lentz (PA-161) attempted to become the second member of the 82nd Airborne to join Congress, but was not elected.
