173d Airborne Brigade
This website is dedicated to all who served in the 319th Artillery, 173d Airborne Brigade. It is a Historical Site trying to preserve the History of the 319th Artillery and the 173d Airborne Brigade which was formed in Okinawa, sent to the Republic of South Vietnam as the first American Army Unit deployed to the War Zone.
We need your help in identifying all the Skysoldiers who were KIA and served in the 319th Artillery. It appeared that the original KIA search did not list the Men of the 319th.
The 173d Airborne Brigade was reactivated on June 12, 2000 on Caserma Ederle in Vicenza, Italy. It serves as European Command's only conventional airborne Strategic response force for the European Theater. Today's Sky Soldiers continue the distinguished service by being deployed to Bosnia, Kosovo, Hungary, Tunisia, Morocco, Germany, Czech Republic, Iraq and Afghanistan.
