Home of the 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment
No other military unit can respond more rapidly and effectively to conflict anywhere in the world than the 82d Airborne Division. Known as "America’s Guard of Honor," the 82d is widely recognized as one of the most powerful forces in America’s military arsenal. The 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment (PIR) is one of the four infantry regiments of the 82d and has served as such for more than fifty years.
The mission of 1BCT is to deploy worldwide within 18 hours of notification, execute a parachute assault, conduct combat operations, and win. Specifically, the Regiment will conduct a forcible entry to seize a defended airfield, build up combat power as quickly as possible and conduct follow-on military operations.
