correct me if im wrong here but i dont think the 25th itself is considered airborne , but there are units within the 25th (in Alaska) that wear the Electric Strawberry. I think its 4th BCT Spartan that is actually airborne , THey have a PIR or two and an Artillery unit there

^ true story , im about a year and 1 tour in with the 82nd . Im still non-airborne personnel and have told me NCOs on many occasion that I will not be jumping for the 82nd due to the way 4th BCT handles its jumps. They keep telling me im going to 18th Fires however im still waiting for orders to 3-231
