Another job well done by the 82nd Airborne Division...

According to the official US Southern Command blog, elements of the 2nd Brigade Combat Team of the 82nd Airborne Division, known as the "Falcon" Brigade, are returning to their home base in Fort Bragg, NC. The 2nd Brigade deployed to Haiti last month in response to the massive earthquake which struck the island nation, causing an estimated 230,000 deaths.

Thousands of Soldiers from the 2nd Brigade were on the ground in force within days of the earthquake, delivering water, food, and medical supplies to the victims of this tragedy.

The 2nd Brigade has a Facebook page which chronicles their accomplishments during this deployment. Congratulations, Falcons: All the way, Airborne!
