Our Chaplains are an excellent resource. It doesn't have to always be about spiritual or religious support. They're counselors and they have one goal, to help you.

You can reach any of them below, you can message us here, or you can email [email protected]

2FURY Paratroopers and Families,
When provided the opportunity to have a voice we should take it. Help make our family housing better. I understand the reluctance to value online surveys. I also know that surveys have 100% chance of failing if you don't participate. Please support, Thank You, FFTS.

This week we remember SGT James Nolen and PFC Marcus A. Tynes from 2nd Platoon, ColdSteel Co/2-508 PIR, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division.

On 22 November 2009, both SGT Nolen and PFC Tynes were part of a team conducting a roving mounted patrol around a traffic control point in Zabul Province, Afghanistan when their vehicle was struck by a roadside bomb, taking their lives.

As we look forward to Thanksgiving on Thursday, we express gratitude for these Paratroopers and their Families.

Please leave any memories of SGT Nolen or PFC Tynes in the comment section.

Brutal Company...getting after it!

Family and Friends,

It's been an exciting week for our Brutal Paratroopers forward. Kicking off last week, Brutal Nation competed in a strongman competition with our Norwegian Army counterparts. The Viking Games were a huge hit! Congratulations to CPT Watson, 1LT Hinton, 1LT Broam, SGT Koenitzer, and SGT Swanzy for repping Brtual Nation in the competition.

SSG Grachen and 1LT Broam continued the motivation into Veterans Day with an intense night ARM shoot. 1ST Platoon Paratroopers underwent a series of target identification drills to hone their skills under NVGs, proving that they own the night!

SSG Mcdade, 1LT Johnson, the Brutal Mortars, and several Paratroopers from the line closed out the week with another day into night mortar shoot. Platoon Forward Observers were able conduct HE, illumination, and coordinated smoke missions to keep their proficiency levels up.

Additionally, the Battalion hosted a Veterans Day memorial workout for Platoon Sergeants and up. Check out the pictures from that event, as well as more from the Viking Games, on the Battalion page.

All around, an outstanding job by our Paratroopers this past week and a half!

FFTS!

ColdSteel Co/2-508 PIR

While we normally arrive to the battlefield by Parachute, our Paratroopers also have to maintain proficiency in Air Assault Operations. Before conducting an operation, our Troopers conduct "cold-load" training to ensure expeditious exiting of the helicopter upon touch-down. Maintaining this proficiency is just one way our Paratroopers continue to support Combined Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve - عملية العزم الصلب in the continued fight to #DefeatDaesh! #FFTS

In a contest of epic proportions pitting Sister Services and Coalition partners from across the Combined Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve - عملية العزم الصلب against one another, Cold-Steel Paratroopers participated in "The Viking Games" hosted by our Norwegian partners.
In the spirit of competition, our Paratroopers gave it everything they had and earned a spot on the podium with our Air Force and Norwegian brothers in arms. Though we may come from many nations, we all have one mission! #defeatDaesh #FFTS #IronSharpensIron

These items were kindly donated to our Battalion, and we did not get the name or POC for the individual that dropped them off. Hopefully those individuals will see/get this message. We as a Battalion very much appreciate these items and will display them in the halls of our Battalion with pride.

One request: Please reach out to me (direct message this account) as I would like to have just a little bit more information on the background of these items.

History Note: During 1950's this was the unit patch for the 508th Airborne Regiment Combat Team (ARCT). The Wyvern (dragon) is also seen on our Coat of Arms. Additionally in the 1950's LTC Clyde M. Dillender established the motto "FURY FROM THE SKY".

Thanks Again!
FURY FROM THE SKY!

I have no words...
In 1978 The 82nd Airborne division association convention was held in Scottsdale Arizona, then I was in B Co. 2nd 508th. 275 man jumped into The desert for a three day field problem, afterwards we were allowed to join the convention. Attending were men from Easy Co. 2nd 506th before anyone knew who they were. I’m trying to figure out why B Co. was selected for this honor, and the other company who was with us. The Arizona Republic paper dated August 8, 1978 recounts the convention. If there’s any archives or records about this, I would be interested in if the public could see those.
I ordered a gift from here for my Dad and he received it today. He was very surprised and grateful. Thank you for making and selling the merchandise.

Help Needed - I hope are men and women are staying safe but I could really use some advice now. I have a cousin, also a veteran. 3+ deployments, Iraq, Afghanistan. He's has 100% disability connection. He is currently in Georgia under protective custody being wrongfully accused of molestation of his daughter by his daughter and his public defender is garbage. Does he have any resources to help him? I know my cousin and the math doesn't add up. She says she's been molested since age 8 and is 14 now. Straight A student who just had her phone taken away from her 2 weeks ago by father. For anonymity purposes I leave their names out.
