Yes, You will always need "boots on the ground" and nobody gets there faster than Airborne. Cutting logistics behind enemy lines. Securing, disrupting or destroying enemy assets. Rapid mobility to "plug a hole" in the FEBA. There is so much more. Airborne is one of the military's greatest assets.

Fo Sho! Our Airborne units like the 82nd who is to respond globally with 18hrs have specific roles and responsibilities that makes them and other airborne units unique. I believe every facet of our Army cannot function the same without the other pieces of the puzzle.

SFC James J. Palmer IV aka "JP4" back in the early 1990s I used to be on DRF-1 *Division Ready Force within 1hours with the Airborne to get in and go on edree/alert. Airborne units were always rocking steady and always ready to roll.

There will be a time when we want to move soldiers quickly by air to conduct defensive, offensive, and blocking missions.

SFC Joe S. Davis Jr., MSM, DSL - Airborne units can be used for flanking and seizing key terrain or infrastructure. An example is for an airborne unit dropped to seize a dam before it is destroyed by the enemy.
