82nd Airborne Division welcomes new leader, generals praise paratroopers for efforts in global fight | fayobserver.com

The new commander of the 82nd Airborne Division doesn’t shy away from the important role his paratroopers play in national security.

“We live in the most dangerous, uncertain and complex times the world has ever seen,” Maj. Gen. Erik Kurilla said Tuesday. “I have no doubt, absolutely no doubt, that the paratroopers of the 82nd Airborne Division will be called upon with little or no notice, deploy and fight in the terrible and unforgiving crucible of ground combat and most importantly, to win that fight, we’ll be ready when we receive that call.”
