Arrival

 

101st airborne arrivalThe father of the Airborne once claimed the Screaming Eagles have no history, but a 
"Rendezvous with Destiny." Maj. Gen. William C. Lee premonition of 25 years ago gained added force with the quick arrival in-country of the remaining paratroopers from the 101st Airborne
Division. 
    The Division minus one brigade left Ft. Campbell Ky., under the command of Maj. Gen. O. M. Barsanti and was flown to Vietnam with a majority of its combat equipment.  This marked the first time a force of more than 10,000 troops had been flown directly into the Vietnam combat zone.
    The Screaming Eagles arrived to continue the Vietnam Odyssey of the Divisions First Brigade.  Since disembarking at Cam Ranh Bay on July 29, 1965, this brigade maintained a reputation with the enemy as one of the most feared United States units in Vietnam
