Are there any NG Airborne units (other than SF)? I'm going to move out of state after my upcoming deployment but haven't decided where yet, but if there are states with airborne units, they would be my first choice. Thanks for any info.

SSG (Join to see), the GAARNG has the 165th Quartermaster Company, which is a rigger outfit. I'm sure there are others like that in other states as well.
