Special welcome from Devil 6, commander of 1st BCT:

Dear Paratrooper:

     Congratulations on your assignment to the 82nd Airborne Division and the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment, “Devils in Baggy Pants.” On behalf of more than 3,500 Paratroopers and families in the Devil Brigade, welcome to Fort Bragg and thanks to you and your family for your service and sacrifice. You will find that your time as part of the 1st BCT and Fort Bragg community will be both challenging and fulfilling.

     The Devil Brigade continues to aggressively train on our core competencies. We will prepare to conduct no-notice deployments in response to contingencies both at home and abroad. Leaders in the Devil Brigade must be physically fit, experts in their trade, agile, and adaptable enough to accomplish all assigned missions.

     Upon completion of in-processing with the Fort Bragg Reception Company, report to the 1st Brigade Combat Team Headquarters, Bldg C-2729 on Ardennes Street. If you arrive after 1700 or on a weekend, sign in with the Staff Duty Officer or NCO, and report back to the BCT HQs the next duty day at 0900.  For more information regarding Fort Bragg and your future assignment, please go to

You and your family are an integral part of the Devil team and we want to ensure you have a smooth transition to 1st BCT and the Fort Bragg area. If your family has questions concerning the Family Readiness Group or Fort Bragg area, please contact our Brigade Family Readiness Support Assistant, Ms. Melissa Finch, at 910-432-5906, or Army Community Services.

Enclosed you will find links to some additional information to familiarize you with the 1st Brigade Combat Team and the history of the 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment prior to your arrival. We are very excited that you are joining our team. Welcome to the Devils in Baggy Pants and we look forward to serving with you.
