The 101st hasn't been airborne since Vietnam - they converted to an air-mobile role while in country and retained the role when they returned to Fort Campbell. Their formal title is 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault).
******** deleted expletives . Hands up to that fella's , my only mitigation can be ???? temporary insanity brought about by copious amounts of naff threads about airborne forces. I will now go and commit ritual flaggelation upon the wife. GERONIMO
No you Cock Head, read wot I said! I have worked with those Units....Good enough for you?
I've actually worked with much better foreign units than those too!
2eme REP have the Airborne ethos, ability & aggression required of an Airborne Unit. They have their share of dipsticks, but from what I've seen of them, not read, I think they are above average. Thats my opinion, based of having spent time with them. Others who have worked with them, might not agree. Those who haven't served with any of those units, should be wary of coming to conclusions based on hot air!
Now,.......what are you insinuating...........based on what You've read?
