50 years of Currahee Brotherhood, Together Then, Together Now

 

Written by Staff Sgt. Paige Behringer
2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division Public Affairs

U.S. ArmyFort Drum, NY – For 243 years the U.S. Army has been fostering brotherhood among its ranks.

Born of the Army, the “Currahee Brothers” forged lifelong bonds in bloody combat during the Vietnam War, and continue reuniting half a century later.

They may appear as simply a group of old veterans congregating in a hotel lobby somewhere outside of Washington, D.C., laughing, joking and telling stories. Instead of celebrating a day of birth, this brotherhood assembles to observe a solemn anniversary.

Their name comes from 3rd Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, which reactivated in 1967 as a “stand alone” task force to increase American presence in Vietnam.

The “Currahee Brothers” from 3rd Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, pose for a group photo during their visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Feb. 19, 2018, in Washington, D.C. Veterans of the battalion visit the memorial annually in remembrance of 8 soldiers lost in an ambush on Feb. 19, 1968. This year marks the 50th anniversary of that battle.

U.S. Forces AfghanistanBagram Airfield, Afghanistan – They look like normal everyday dogs with their tails wagging. But when given the right command by the right person, military working dogs “snap-to,” just like the disciplined Soldiers they protect.

Working alongside U.S. service members throughout the world, military working dogs are a dedicated, reliable battlefield companion to the military police (MP) handler. They are always on guard to protect the team, either through bomb detection or when necessary aggressive protection.
