    Awesome Andy!!!
    I grew up on Ft. Bragg & in Fayetteville for my first 12 years of life. My Dad was airborne & special forces in the 101st & 82 during his 23 years of service. I was one helluva boot shining kid, it made me proud to help my father look amazing in his uniforms.

    OMG, I just found out that the 82nd airborne was stripped of their airborne status!!! Not relevant anymore, BS!!!!

    Not "relevant" ... BS is right.
    I was in LRRP / LRSD teams Based out of Campbell and Bragg and they too were "Not Relevant" and phased out .
    Sad and shameful.
    For today's combat Airborne and LRSD outfits are ideal , Just what the Department of Defense is thinking is beyond me ...
