Keeping It Real.
It looks easier than it is. Just try it at home.
Paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne Division compete in the Team Assault Course Competition during the division’s “All American Week.”
Seventeen teams from across the division negotiated nine obstacles in a race against the clock to determine the fastest team. All American Week celebrates the past, present and future of the storied unit. Medal of Honor recipient Sergeant York, was a member of the All American Division back in 1918 before it became the Army’s first Airborne division in 1942.
The 82nd made combat jumps in Sicily, Italy, Normandy and Holland during World War II.
