Product Description

The 82nd Airborne Brass Standard AmmOMug® is a Superior beverage mug for both hot and cold beverages.

 

The highly decorated 82nd Airborne Division "All American" has a long and meritorious history in the US Army! 

 

"The 82nd Division was first constituted on 5 August 1917 in the National Army. It was organized and formally activated on 25 August 1917 at Camp Gordon, Georgia. The division consisted entirely of newly conscripted soldiers. When commanders discovered that the division contained draftees from the forty-eight U.S. states that existed at the time, they nicknamed it "the All-American division."

 

In Normandy
With two combat assaults under its belt, the 82nd Airborne Division was now ready for the most ambitious airborne operation of the war so far, as part of Operation Neptune, the invasion of Normandy. The division conducted Operation Boston, part of the airborne assault phase of the Operation Overlord plan.

 

In preparation for the operation, the division was reorganized. To ease the integration of replacement troops, rest, and refitting following the fighting in Italy, the 504th did not rejoin the division for the invasion. Two new parachute infantry regiments (PIRs), the 507th and the 508th, provided it, along with the 505th, a three-parachute infantry regiment punch. On 5 and 6 June, these paratroopers, parachute artillery elements, and the 319th and 320th, boarded hundreds of transport planes and gliders to begin history's largest airborne assault at the time (only Operation Market Garden later that year would be larger). During the June 6th assault, a 508th platoon leader, Lt. Robert P. Mathias, would be the first American officer killed by German fire on D-Day. On June 7, after this first wave of attack, the 325th Glider Infantry Regiment would arrive by glider to provide a division reserve.

 

By the time the All-American Division was pulled back to England, it had seen 33 days of bloody combat and suffered 5,245 troopers killed, wounded, or missing. Ridgway's post-battle report stated in part, "...33 days of action without relief, without replacements. Every mission accomplished. No ground gained was ever relinquished."

 

Following Normandy, the 82nd became part of the newly organized XVIII Airborne Corps, which consisted of the U.S. 17th, 82nd, and 101st Airborne Divisions. Ridgway was given command, but was not promoted to lieutenant general until 1945. His recommendation for succession as commander was Brigadier General James M. Gavin. Ridgway's recommendation met with approval, and upon promotion Gavin became the youngest general since the Civil War to command a US Army division."[1] - Wikipedia

 

Celebrate the 70th Anniversary Commemoration of the Normandy Liberation this year with the 9th Air Force AmmOMug®!

 

This AmmOMug® is part of the 70th Anniversary Picauville Normandy Commemorative Collection  that honors the Liberators of Picauville, Normandy France on June 6th 1944. 

 

Picauville is a town in Normandy in north-western France. In early June 1944, after the liberation of the area by the 82nd Airborne Division, the 101st Airborne Division, the 90th Infantry, the  Engineers of the Ninth Air Force IX Engineering Command began construction of a combat Advanced Landing Ground (ALG) to the northwest of the town. The ALG was declared operational on 26 June and the airfield was designated as "A-8". It was used by the 405th Fighter Group which flew P-47 Thunderbolts until mid-September when the unit moved to St. Dizier, near Nancy. Since the liberation, the town of Picauville has commemorated the heroics of the liberators of Picauville and the surrounding area and all who have sacrificed for the others and future generations. 

 

On June 5th and 6th, 2014 the Association Picauville Se souvient will host Commemoration ceremonies and Remembrance exercises in Picauville.

 

Please keep All in your thoughts during this very special occasion.
