Its members stand up for what's right even when they’re fast-roping into danger. They’re among the first to step up and set things right, which now, more than ever, is increasingly valuable in a world full of threats to our nation. Their courage and integrity not only sets them apart; it’s also part of a set of values hardwired into every Soldier.
Fighting for what's right with honor, integrity and certitude, this elite light infantry division, comprised of Soldiers from nearly every military occupational specialty in the Army, has a distinct character and a proud history in both war and peace. Focused on achieving results and continuous modernization, freedom has followed in the footsteps of the Screaming Eagles. These air warriors are not limited to assaulting “right down through the skies of blue.” They are also skilled warriors and diplomats, engaging in peacekeeping, disaster relief and humanitarian assistance missions around the world.
From the moment one puts on the Screaming Eagle patch, they’re overcome with a feeling of pride and accomplishment. A division with unmatched status and history, the Screaming Eagles’ motto—“Rendezvous with Destiny”—has rung true for decades. It’s why every Soldier in this legendary division is deeply committed to honoring and preserving its future, ensuring they live up to the prestige and reputation of both the division and the greater U.S. Army.
