Watch As Soldiers Of The 101st Airborne Fight Taliban Scum In Afghanistan
The 101st Airborne Division has a proud history of taking the fight to the enemy, from it’s initial creation in 1918, all the way up to the present day. From parachuting behind enemy lines on D-Day, June 6th, 1944, Operation Market Garden in Holland, to fighting in the Battle of the Bulge and up to the battle on Hamburger Hill in 1969 and all the way up to the present day, when fighting in Afghanistan.
These brave soldiers have always answered the call to duty, even when the enemy had overwhelming numbers, the “Screaming Eagles” never backed down from a fight. The 101st Airborne Division has a nearly century-long proud history of service to this nation. As an old paratrooper myself, I salute each and every one of these brave young men.

Footage shot during Operation Dragon Strike (2010).
Operation Dragon Strike was a NATO counter-insurgent mission in Kandahar province, Afghanistan, against Taliban forces, which started on September 15, 2010.
The aim of the operation was to reclaim the strategic southern province of Kandahar, which was the birthplace of the Taliban movement. The area where the operation took place has been dubbed “The Heart of Darkness” by Coalition troops.
The main force leading the operation were units from the 101st Airborne Division. Some of the heaviest of the fighting during the operation had been in the Zhari District, which is on the main highway to Kandahar and a major insurgent supply route into the city, the Arghandab District and the Panjwaye District.
By the end of December 2010, the operation’s main objectives had been accomplished. The majority of Taliban forces in Kandahar had withdrawn from the province, and much of their leadership was said to have been fractured.
