AIRBORNE

AIRBORNE DIVISIONS The "airborne" divisional designation began around the time of World War II and, since that time, the Army has sporatically designated previously non-airborne divisions as airborne. This leads to one problem: the divisional lineage of the airborne division is inseparable from the division's non-airborne designation.

Therefore, this section contains titles of the airborne designated units. When one clicks on the titles, you will be transported to a topic that displays not only information about that airborne division, but also the division's history before and after being designated "airborne."
