    Default I'm the 82nd Airborne, and this is as far as the bastards are going.

    After almost seven years in 160th I decided it was time to move on. As of November 10th, I became a proud member of the 82nd Airborne Division.

    Airborne all the way!

    Hooah!

    I wish I was saying the same thing.
    I am besieged, by a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna. I have sustained a continual Bombardment and cannonade for 24 hours and have not lost a man. The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise, the garrison are to be put to the sword, if the fort is taken. I have answered the demand with a cannon shot, and our flag still waves proudly from the walls. I shall never surrender or retreat. Then, I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism and everything dear to the American character, to come to our aid, with all dispatch. The enemy is receiving reinforcements daily and will no doubt increase to three or four thousand in four or five days. If this call is neglected, I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible and die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor and that of his country. VICTORY or DEATH.

    Outstanding. Then I take it you will be close enough to come to the Sizzler in the August time-frame? AATW!!

    From what I'm gathering we won't be anywhere near a Sizzler next summer if you catch my drift. ;)

    If you're ever down in Wonderful Wilmington, shoot me your digits, I'm always looking for a fellow airborne brother to share an adult soda with.

    Which proves, I suppose, that every silver lining has a cloud...

    You hit the lotto. The 325 is the most elite unit in the 82nd Airborne Division.

    Did you willingly come from "the other side" of the street? Congrats on making it to the majors though. The 82nd is a hell of a fine unit to deploy with, mostly .
