During World War II, the 327th Glider Infantry Regiment ("Bastogne Bulldogs") was a gliderborne regiment of the U.S. 101st Airborne Division. It fought during World War I as part of the U.S. 82nd Division.. It has also been deployed to: The Dominican Republic 1965; Vietnam, 7/29/65 – 3/10/72; Grenada, 1983; Panama, 1989; Desert Storm, 1990; and most recently to Iraq and Afghanistan.. The song "Glider Rider" describes some of the slights that gliderborne troops felt they received from the Army during WWII; though the regiment's public fame rose with the 1949 movie Battleground about the Siege of Bastogne in 1944...

http://www.davidicke.com/forum/showp...7&postcount=52Was this trip necessary?. I'll try to answer that.. But my sermons, like everything else in the army depend on the situation and the terrain..Those of us who've learned it the hard way aren't going to forget it..We must never again let any force dedicated to a super-race..or a super-idea, or super-anything become strong enough to impose itself upon a free world..We must be smart enough and tough enough in the beginning to put out the fire before it starts spreading...http://www.davidicke.com/forum/showp...&postcount=134
