National Airborne Day holds special resonance at Fort Benning, birthplace of the Airborne | U.S. Army

Eighty years ago, America was not quite in World War II. However, they were getting prepared for it. Other powerful countries have already had parachute units. The United States followed suit and created the Airborne unit at Fort Benning. National Airborne day is now celebrated as a reflection on the original men who completed four days full of test jumps to create what we now know as Airborne.
