let me guess you are one of those marines? My gramps used to tell me- "you wanna take over a beach- join the Marines, but if you want to take over a nation join the 82nd Airborne".
In 18 hours the DRF-1 (Division Ready Force 1 of the 82nd Airborne -is anywhere on planet Earth dropping from the sky -and we come down swinging-fighting the enemies' entire forces alone- til the rest of the US military gets off its ass. No other unit in our military or in the world has this known capability. Other units have specialty troops for specific missions...but bar none- the 82nd Airborne is the finest frontline combat unit in this worlds' history- and still bears that title proudly.
