Abstract:

This paper will examine United States Army airborne forces as they relate to the Objective Force. It will address the need for the United States to retain a strategic airborne force for forcible entry operations and will explain why this force should remain a consolidated airborne division and not some distributed capability scattered across the Army at the Unit of Employment level. As part of this discussion, the paper will address facilities, training, command and control, and modernization issues.
