No. Jersey Chapter of the 82nd Assn. takes part in Woodbridge parade

The North Jersey Chapter of the 82nd Airborne Division Association will be participating in a parade in Woodbridge Twsp., on Sunday, beginning at 1:30 p.m., under the command of Color Guard Capt. Blair Rush. For information about the association, click on the headline and go to the association's main site.

The association is a great institution, which is a touchstone for former members of airborne units who served on active duty. Members are always being sought. Basically, to join one needs to have been a paratrooper in an airborne unit serving on active duty. The North Jersey Chapter is very competitive with membership numbers, and is a very active chapter for those interested.

Caption: The famous "Iron Mike" is a monument at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina, representing the spirit of the Airborne.
