Peace through Strength: The 1st Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division


The CALFEX is an exercise that tests the ability and readiness for our military in a “real world” scenario, preparing them for the next deployments, and constantly fine tuning each units skill. The ability to be good at your individual job is important, but being able to integrate your job with others as a fluid group is vital.

The 1st Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division just returned from a CALFEX. Watch them here and join me in saluting some of the finest military in the world.

    1st Brigade out of the 82nd Division; How about the other Brigades? Are they able to Go Today?
    Divisional maneuvers? Any Parachuting?
    Is the 101st Division Ready to Go? the 1st Division?
    Does 3 Divisions make an Army? For 2 hot wars? or even 1 larger war?
    Think 1939’s Regular US Army. Once past Spec.Forces and 3 or 4 Brigades, I hear readiness is SOFT.
