3rd Brigade, 82nd Airborne Division
3rd Brigade, 82nd Airborne Division The story of the 3rd Brigade, 82nd Airborne Division, began in 1917 when it was activated as the 156th Infantry Brigade, an element of the 78th Division. In May 1964, the Brigade was reorganized as the 3rd Brigade, 82nd Airborne Division. On Feb. 13, 1968, the advance party left Pope Air Base, N.C., for the Republic of Vietnam. The Brigade landed at Chu Lai and was attached to the 101st Airborne Division (Airmobile). The All-Americans were given the mission of protecting the ancient capital of Hue in Military Region 1. In the fall of 1968, the Brigade moved to the Capital Military District. After a year and a half of protecting the western flanks of Saigon from enemy attacks, the 3rd Brigade, 82nd Airborne Division, had worked itself out of a job. The unit was named as one of the major elements to be redeployed as part of the Phase II cutback. With the Brigade's departure on Dec. 12, 1969, another chapter in its colorful history was brought to a close.
