    Audio by Staff Sgt. William Reinier  

    82nd Airborne Division

    In August of 1917, in a sleepy Georgia outpost called Camp Gordon, a new unit forms for entry into the Great War. This inaugural episode of the All American Legacy podcast dispels some myths about the creation of the 82nd and explains the origins of our country's most celebrated unit.

    Master Sgt. Patrick Malone introduces us to the All American Division while discussing how the unit got its name and where the origins of the unit's famed-Double A patch comes from. 82nd War Memorial Museum Director, John Arsen joins us to talk about the history of the patch and how it came to look the way it does.

    Hosts Staff Sgt. Will Reinier and Lt. Col. Joe Buccino discuss episode one and discuss the origin of the nickname "All Americans" as well as the history behind some of the Division's early commanders.
