When you study the 82nd Airborne Division through the lens of American history over the past one hundred years you find that all the important occasions - the defining events that shaped our Nation - are somehow touched by the All Americans. On this episode of the All American Legacy podcast, we bring you back to a time when the 82nd Airborne Division deployed to restore order. This time, not in some far-off country. This time, the mission for the All Americans was in America.
On this episode of the All American Legacy Podcast we discuss a dark period for our Nation. Amidst the racial strife of 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination touched off a firestorm of riots in Washington, D.C. The 82nd Airborne Division was called upon to control the chaos. On this episode, we bring you the voices of the Paratroopers who were there on the ground during those riots.
The All American Legacy Podcast is produced by the 82nd Airborne Division Public Affairs Office. A new episode on the legacy, culture, and history of the 82nd Airborne Division is released every Tuesday.
