NEW! Enamel Pins are the perfect compliment to your division patch. Pin is approximately 1/2" x 1" This enamel pin will look great on your American Legion or VFW hat too! The 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault)—nicknamed the “Screaming Eagles”—is an elite airborne division of the United States Army primarily trained for air assault operations. During the Vietnam War, the 101st was redesignated an airmobile division, and later as an air assault division. For historical reasons, it keeps the identifier “airborne,” but does not conduct parachute operations at a division level. Many modern members of the 101st are graduates of the U.S. Army Air Assault School, and wear the Air Assault Badge, but it is not a prerequisite to be assigned to the division. The division is headquartered at Fort Campbell, Kentucky and has served in Iraq and Afghanistan. It is the only division in the U.S. Army that has two Aviation Brigades.
