"The 82nd Airborne Division - 'America's Guard of Honor' - is one of the most powerful forces in the US military arsenal. From Normandy in World War II, the jungles of Vietnam, the desert in Southwest Asia, or the mountains of Afghanistan, no other military unit has responded more rapidly and effectively to conflict anywhere in the world than the 82nd Airborne Division." As the United States entered World War I, the 82nd Division was constituted and organized in August 1917 at Camp Gordon, Georgia. The unit acquired the nickname 'All-American' as all 48 states were represented on its initial roster. Today, the 82nd Airborne Division remains an elite force whose ranks are filled with Soldiers from all 50 States, the United States Territories and immigrants from many other countries. As the largest parachute force in the free world, the 82nd Airborne Division is trained and ready to deploy anywhere, at anytime.
