My ERB was just updated, and I am supposed to be heading to Fort Bragg, 1st BDE REPL after my AIT here in AZ. I have no clue what this unit is or does, and i could not find any information on it with a google search. Can anyone clue me in? I have been in TRADOC since 20080917, and I am needless to say very excited about getting into a "real" unit. I still have about 8 weeks of school here to go best case, so I'm hoping when I finally get where I'm going its a high speed unit. All of my friends here are going into SF groups or large combat units like the 82nd, or 2ID, and I'm hoping for something similar.

1st BDE as in 1BCT 82nd Airborne Division. AKA: The devils in dirty baggy pants.

From there you'll be pushed out to whatever unit within that BCT you'll be assigned to. You say AIT in AZ, so I assume MI. You could go anywhere within the BCT. I assume you have jump school enroute?

ETA: Of course, it's been 4 years since I was last assigned to Bragg, so their could be another 1st brigade out there somewhere.

Oh, I like the sound of the 82nd. I haven't heard anything about jump school thus far, so I'm putting an ap in this week, just in case.

BTW, its 15W, not 35X. I'm in the UAS training battalion over here.

sounds like my old unit 1st brigade, 82nd airborne 504 parachute infantry regiment(i was in 3rd batt). It is a tough unit, loved the 6 years I was there though.

504 PIR - great unit!. Getting ready to hit the Sandbox later this year. BDE XO is a top notch guy!

As a UAS operator you will be at BDE HQ - come by the Huachuca OSJA and I will show you some pictures.
