The 1st Brigade, 101st Airborne "Vietnam Odyssey Book" CD

This is believe to be the first original (or one of the first) publication by the 101st Airborne Division for the Air Assault Division, dated September 1976.  Upon its arrival in Vietnam in 1965 (1st Brigade, followed in 1967 by the 3rd Battalion (Airborne), 506th Infantry Battalion, then the 2nd and 3rd Brigades in 1968), the division was an airborne unit. In mid-1968 it was reorganized and redesignated as an airmobile division, then in 1974 as an Air Assault Division. Both of these titles reflect the fact that the division went from airplanes as the primary method of delivering troops into combat, to the use of helicopters as the way the division entered battle. Many current members of the 101st are graduates of the U.S. Army Air Assault School and wear the Air Assault Badge.  Division headquarters is at Fort Campbell, KentuckyThis CD contains a digital copy of each page of the "Air Assault in action" magazine.
