Anybody who served with the 173d Airborne knows and understands the unit is one of the best in the U.S. military's arsenal of fighting units. History bears this out, the unit has always been on the cutting edge of the battle, and the legend continues. Before now, so far as we know, there has never been an effort to record the stories or testimonies of living survivors of the 173d, be they Afghanistan, Iraq or Vietnam veterans. But that has changed.The Herd History Project is your opportunity to tell of your experiences while serving with the Herd.This is your opportunity to record your story for you, your family and your posterity. They will all be grateful you set aside but 30 minutes or an hour of your time to do so long after you've departed.

We pledge we will do everything humanly possible to have your stories, your thoughts and your experiences we record on the Herd History Project stored at the Library of Congress and also through the Smithsonian.

Avail yourself of this opportunity immediately, do not waste another day
as time is fleeting.
