          Air Assault school is a very silly experience. Instead of trying to emulate airborne school and try to have the skill badge "mean something" the air assault school should be a place where whole units rotate in at a time to get a couple of days of training, and the skill badge should only be for people who go through an in-depth rigging school because that's what they fricking do, not a feelgood badge expected of the whole division.

            The Army likes to make skill badges into hazing sessions for a week just so they can tell themselves how tough they are for having a badge instead of it actually being meant for rigging, rappeling etc. All the dumbass privates memory dump all of it by the time they get here.

              That is pretty much my exact complaint. Other divisions and even JROTC kids have rappelling training and they don't have to make a big deal out of it, but the 101st had to turn it into "the toughest ten days in the army" because some fricking general had an inferiority complex about the 82nd and their parachutist badges.

                Yeah its not even really that hard it just sucks, I just wish they just focused on the technical skills of the school. Not everything has to be like Ranger School.

    I was in the 2-506, worst unit I've ever been in. We would run 6-8 miles every day because of fricking BoB. They would play the BoB theme every fricking ceremony, shout slogans and quotes from the show. SNCOs and officers just wanted to be in the unit because of the fricking show I fricking hated it and all the clowns in the leadership.

    Why is it still called "1st Cavalry Division"?

    The answer is muh unit lineage, muh heritage. Modern people making themselves feel better by pretending the actions of people in the past are somehow their doing.

      Heavy vehicles today are equivalent to horse-mounted warriors from back then in many ways. Also, OP, they're still called airborne units because they get ferried around in helicopters much of the time.

      I always thought it was funny with how often the Army reflags units that there's any sort of tradition at all.

      They might as well try to claim all the civil war corps are the super secret progenitors of all the modern corps. The ACW veterans are dead, they can't complain anymore.

    Mines and other improvised explosives send most servicemen "airborne". The United States Army just spends a bit more time 'airborne" than the other branches.
