The 325th Airborne Infantry Regiment deploys anywhere in the world, within 18 hours of notification. The regiment conducts forced entry parachute assaults to seize, retain and defended airfield or other asset, then builds up combat power in order to control land, people, and resources. The regiment returned to the All American Division on 15 December 1948 and was redesignated this time the 325th Airborne Infantry Regiment. On 1 May 1965, the 325th deployed to the revolution torn Dominican Republic as part of Operation Power Pack. Sent with the mission of relieving marines and evacuating civilians, the regiment swept from the airfield at San Isidro into the capital city of Santo Domingo. By the end of May, the regiment began peace keeping and civil affairs operations. On 26 October 1983, as part of Operation Urgent Fury, the 325th Regiment spearheaded the All American Division's assault on the communist dominated island of Grenada. One hundred thirty eight students were rescued." Condition: Very good.
