FORTY YEAR A/101 AVN REUNION     


 

 A101 40th Anniversary Reunion - 22 April through 24 April 2005

Forty years ago this year (1965) was the first time that an Assault Helicopter Company of the 101st Airborne was committed to combat. It was the first time since WWII that any unit from the 101st had been committed to combat. It was done in the form of Company A, 101st Aviation Battalion, 101st Airborne Division which very quickly became know as the "Warriors and Thunderbirds".
