Forces of Valor 83002 US 101st Airborne Division [Air Assault] "The Screaming Eagles" Figure Pack (1:32 Scale)
"In war there is no second prize for the runner-up."
- General Omar Bradley
The true Forces of Valor...the men that fought the battles, the men behind the machines, and the men that paid the ultimate sacrifice. These men came from every nation and every creed to battle on their countries' behalf. Unrecognized acts of heroism occurred every hour of every day across every battlefield all over the world.
Today's fighting forces are similar to those of the past. The makeup of men, now joined by women, remains basically the same. Acts of heroism, keen determination, and sheer willpower define today's Forces of Valor... They travel to lands far and wide, protect "Free World" interests, rapidly organize for combat operations, and constantly put themselves in harm's way.
This set consists of five US soldiers in various poses from the 101st Airborne Division [Air Assault]. Comes with sandbags and a variety of battlefield equipment.

Historical Account: "Rendezvous with Destiny" - In January 1991, the 101st once again had its "Rendezvous with Destiny" in Iraq during the deepest combat air assault into enemy territory in the history of the world. Miraculously, the 101st sustained no soldiers killed in action during the 100-hour war and captured thousands of enemy prisoners of war.
