AIRBORNE

This section contains U.S. Army patches relating to the airborne divisions.


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."
