All Things Airborne

Airborne became a reality on 16 August 1940 over Lawson Field near Fort Benning, GA, when the U.S. Army Parachute Test Platoon dropped its first members out of a Douglas B18. Since then, Airborne Heritage has been synonymous with bravery and exceptional service. This page will collect many aspects of our proud Airborne history and heritage. 

This section will continue to grow over time. So check back often! AATW!
