Hudson Recognizes All American Week, 82nd Airborne Division

“Mr. SPEAKER, I rise today in honor of All American Week, the annual celebration of the 82nd Airborne Division’s mission and the paratroopers who serve to uphold it.
Based in my district at Fort Bragg – the epicenter of the universe – the 82nd Airborne Division is our nation’s Global Response Force. These rapid reaction forces can mobilize, load and deploy at a moment’s notice.
It’s truly incredible. There is ready... and then there is Airborne ready. As the old saying goes, “when the President dials 911, the phone rings at Fort Bragg.”
And since its inception, the 82nd Airborne has time and again answered the call of duty when our nation needs it most.
As we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Fort Bragg, I am so proud of the 82nd Airborne’s legacy, of our paratroopers and especially of their families.
As the Airborne spirit takes flight this week, I ask my fellow Americans to join me in praying for our service members who are currently deployed and for their families. These heroes put country before self, and we are so grateful. God bless you.
Airborne – all the way!
And with that, Mr. SPEAKER, I yield back.”
