I still don't get how they are air assault. I did AA school at Drum but we don't call ourselves that. It's not like the 101 gets extra AA training, they simply have their own qualified school there. The airborne unit in Italy is the 173rd. When I was thinking of reenlisting that was my second choice if I couldn't get a RIP (RASP now?) contract.
