82nd Airborne Division

As we continue to spotlight our All American families this week, we'd like you to meet the Laman's!

Capt. Matt and Meagen Laman have served in the Division for approximately four and a half years along with their three Jr. Paratroopers - Anabal and Brynn (twin girls) and Kaitlin. Capt. Laman is the commander of Headquarters Support Company, 82d Airborne Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion and Megan is an FRG Leader for the unit and the Association of Bragg Spouses. They both come from a long line of military service and say they’re proud to raise kids in that same military lifestyle.

“I loved growing up as an Air Force Brat because of all the adventures that we went on as family. My parents were very proactive in making sure that we grew up knowing about the different cultures and histories surrounding all of our homes. I can think of no greater blessing than being able to raise our three daughters as Army Brats that also get to experience the world on a greater level.”

Not only does Meagan support the unit families, she also supports the Fort Bragg community at large by serving as the Association of Bragg Spouses (ABS) Executive Board Secretary. Meagan has managed the information flow to the ABS members and continues to be an invaluable volunteer on the team.

On this Memorial Day may their families find peace in knowing they paid the ultimate sacrifice to help preserve the freedom of others.

82nd Airborne Division

All Americans,

As we reflect on the past 60 days, this would have been All American Week where we celebrate our history and lineage through a myriad of activities. Even though conditions didn’t allow us to execute, the DCSM and I could not be more proud of each of you and know that you are now part of that proud 102 year legacy. As you go in to this weekend, please reflect on the 16,000+ Paratroopers that have gone before us. Celebrate their sacrifice, honor, but never forget.

The aperture continues to open but our priorities have not changed. We still have to protect the force and maintain readiness while doing our part to prevent the spread of the virus. Our mitigation measures are working but we have to stay vigilant to keep everyone healthy.

Governor Cooper recently announced that North Carolina would move to ‘Phase Two’ of its reopening plan on Friday – with some restrictions in place. This means that as we head into the long weekend, we’ll see several marked changes in our surrounding communities. Notably, mass gatherings are allowed with no more than 10 people indoors or 25 people outdoors, retail business will return to 100% occupancy, and restaurants will open for on-premises service. Barber shops will also open in a limited capacity while gyms and other indoor fitness facilities will remain closed. Keep an eye on the Fort Bragg page for updates on how these changes will affect facilities on base. There have been no change to the local leave and pass policy which is still limited to the state of N.C. Anything more than 50 miles still requires BC approval and POV is the only authorized method of travel.

I’m excited to say that Task Force All American is home! As of today, the entire Immediate Response Force has safely redeployed back to Fort Bragg after their historic deployment throughout the Middle East. When the Nation called we answered, and readiness was at the heart of our ability to respond. This deployment is a testament to every rehearsal, alert sequence, and deployment exercise that’s been executed over the many-many years here on Fort Bragg. This is why we train so hard – this is why we exist.

This week we began setting up lanes for the upcoming Expert Infantryman Badge (EIB) and Expert Soldier Badge (ESB) testing. In June, we will execute the EIB and the Division’s first ever ESB qualifications – in what we believe to be the largest-combined execution yet in the Army. Right now Paratroopers are getting after it, focusing their efforts on the “All American Six,” with an emphasis on EIB/ESB tasks. Next week the Army Maneuver Center of Excellence will validate the lanes to ensure they meet the most rigorous standards. All Soldiers, NCOs, Officers, and Warrant Officers are invited to compete. Start training and conditioning now! Mastery at the individual level is paramount to collective proficiency.

On Memorial Day, America honors all members of the military who died serving our Nation as well as the Gold Star survivors and families members they leave behind. For us, it’s an opportunity to reflect and remember our fallen Paratroopers. This year at the Coca Cola 600, two of those All American heroes will be among the many honored by NASCAR. The # 88 car will honor SSG Scott Brunkhorst (B. Co. 2-508 PIR) and the # 11 car will honor 1SG Russell Bell (HHC/1-508 PIR). Although we won’t be there in person this year, the Division is certainly represented well with two cars to cheer for. Watch the race, and keep an eye on our social media pages over the weekend for special Memorial Day tributes.

As our surroundings start to change we have to stay vigilant to prevent a ‘snap back.’ Practice safe behavior. Continue to wear your PPE and continue to physically distance yourself from others – tactical dispersion is key! If you’re not feeling well “stay home”. Don’t write off your symptoms as a cold or sinuses, see your Doc! It’s better to be safe than sorry. The formula for success hasn’t changed. Don’t get it - Don’t give it. Have a safe and great Memorial Day Weekend!

ATW!

82nd Airborne Division

All Americans,

This marks the first week of "Airborne Operations" since March, we are getting there. Troopers are ecstatic to be back doing what they love. We are winning this fight and remain on the back end of the curve due to mitigation. As we continue to move towards normal operations our priorities remain the same - protecting the force, preserving readiness, and preventing the further spread of the virus.

This week, Governor Cooper issued an executive order that will allow North Carolina to move into the first phase of the lifting statewide restrictions. Fort Bragg will follow suit and begin to resume some level of increased operations. Starting Friday May 8, the Commander has expanded the local leave and pass area to include all of North Carolina - no longer limited to 50 miles. Paratroopers who travel more than 50 miles from Fort Bragg for leave or pass will require approval from a Battalion commander and POV is the only authorized method of travel. It's important for leaders to be engaged here. I expect leaders to have rich discussions with Soldiers on their leave and pass plans and make common sense risk decisions. As part of this, leaders will consider an assessment of the area where they plan to take leave.

On Friday, we welcomed back the first wave of Paratroopers from 1/82, CAB, DTAC, and others who deployed with little or no notice earlier this year. A heartfelt thank you to all of the families and friends who came out to show love and support at the first-ever "Welcome home wave" on Pike Field. It was a great example of how we are finding innovative ways to stay connected in the current environment. We expect the rest of our Paratroopers to return over the next few weeks, closing out a historic deployment. In conversations with the Chief of Staff of the Army, GEN McConville personally commended those who deployed, and remarked on the significant strategic impacts for the nation.

This week we saw the return of limited airborne operations for the first time since late March. It may have looked a little different with mitigation measures in place, but it was good to see Paratroopers getting back to the familiar business of "getting out the door." Next week we'll continue to build readiness as Paratroopers return to duty and units ramp up individual and squad training. We'll restart our Jump Master and Small Unit Ranger Tactics (SURT) courses with mitigation measures in place like smaller classes, physical distancing, PPE, hand washing, medical screening, and increased sanitation standards. At the Division level, we will run Expert Infantryman and Expert Soldier Badge qualification in May/June. All Soldiers, NCOs, Officers, and Warrant Officers should compete, no matter your MOS. The train-up and testing will be tough, but you'll walk away a more lethal and skilled Paratrooper - exactly who we need leading our formations!

We are not in the clear yet, but we are winning. As we ease back into things it's important that we constantly assess ourselves and be ready to react to any "snap-backs" if conditions change. Stay vigilant ... Don't get it, Don't give it, do your part to limit the spread of this disease.

ATW!

I am a Viet Nam vet from and retired E7 from the USAF.. I see another military action the 82nd can be proud of in their long and proud history like Anzio , Normandy beach , the Battle of the Buldge etc.and now Washington DC. What a disgrace it is to all military veterans to see the 82nd at Washington DC.
Need a little info. Attempting to determine which unit I was assigned to while stationed at Fort Bragg, after my tour in Vietnam. I know that I arrived from Medical, in either late December 1968,or early January 1969,. And, was assigned to the 82d Signal Unit, which was there at Bragg, at that time. In all honesty, I can't seem to remember which particular Battalion, or Brigade that Unit was assigned to. And, don't even remember if it was a Company sized Unit or larger.* (Unaware at the time that I was suffering severe PTSD issues. I was simply trying to block out all memories. Not just memories of Vietnam) Any assistance that you might be able to provide would be of great help, and very much appreciated. At that time, my Service Information was Sp4, Karl Faulk (RA-12845047) And, I served from 1969 to 1970, in that Unit, The 82d Signal at Fort Bragg. Kindly respond at your leisure: [email protected] I Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter. Respectfully, Karl Faulk
I worked in Division HQ from 1982-85', in the G-1 Section...My SGM was Manny DeJesus...I believe my section Chief was Joe Trez....I remember Col Ed Throckmorton...CPT Gary Klaben, I did special projects for Division like the art work for the weekly boxing matches, drawings for the slides in the Division's DWI Program in 1984, T-shirt designs for road races and strip maps for the big 5K they used to have every year there...And yes, of course I jumped!!!! ALL THE WAY!!!! PROUD TO BE A PARATROOPER!!!
Here is a despicable pamphlet denigrating the elite status of airborne in general, and the US Airborne in particular by a former All American nest fowler named John T. Reed. What's your take?
Take A Knee Throughout history when we “took a knee”... and privately prayed to our God above It was an act of reverence and devotion... a simple act of respect and love. But as with anything there is a time... and a place for us to “take a knee”... out of respect for those around us... it wasn’t done for all to see. When we pray...it’s a personal thing... a simple hello to our God on high taking others into account... who don’t always see it like you and I. So these protesters now who kneel to say... that they are unhappy about their plight are choosing the wrong time and place... to convince the world that they are right. Before each game when we stand to honor... this wonderful country of freedoms and rights for those few moments...just let us remember... the men and women who bravely fight To keep this country strong and free... for those few moments let there be peace The National Anthem represents freedom... the freedom for all to think as they please. The eighties made us stop and look... at things we had always simply accepted... we finally started demanding answers... to things that seemed a little bit strange. The nineties gave us a chance to rebuild... the things the eighties had so affected we had the chance to make things work... so it was a time of growth and change. But now we are into a new millennium... we've got the means to see it through... America really can be great again... the world is watching to see what we do. We're stronger now than ever before... better because of mistakes in the past... we're far from perfect...but we are changing... some of our leaders are listening at last. But we have to stop dwelling... so long on the negative why does it seem that we only care... to read or watch...when something goes wrong our news is nothing but killing and despair. We have to start cheering... when something is right... and there's a lot of right in this land... good people just don't create the news... and it's time the good people...started to stand... to show the world...America is still... the land of the free...and the home of the brave. We still have heroes...ideals...and dreams... we still worship God...each in his way. I love living here...because this is my home... I love the mountains...the rivers and the trees... I love the laws...the language and the people... I love the freedom America guarantees. So if all you can do...while enjoying her freedom is to dwell on the faults...and the failures of the few... be thankful you live...in a country that allows the negative grumbling...of a person such as you. Because I love the privilege of being an American... and I welcome the duties...that privilege demands because this is by far...the best place on earth... so get up off your knees... and united we will stand. copyright 2017 james bruce joseph sievers
