On this February 14, 1968 The 3rd Brigade 82nd Airborne deployed to Vietnam from Ft. Bragg N.C. 282 Paratroopers gave the ultimate sacrifice for their fellow troopers, family and the Country they fought for, America!
1200 plus were wounded in a very short time. 22 Months in combat. Not to mention the 1000’s of sociological scars.
Those who survived do their best to live life to the fullest.
Every day of life is a bonus day for these survivors.
