Message from the XVIII Airborne Corps and Fort Bragg's Commanding General Lt. Gen. Paul LaCamera:

"On behalf of the entire XVIII Airborne Corps and Fort Bragg Command Team, I would like to thank everyone who supported Fort Bragg's Independence Day Celebration last week. It is not lost on us that you sacrificed your time to ensure we had an opportunity to safely and securely celebrate the birth of our Nation. A Nation founded on the principles of liberty and freedom and paid for with the blood and treasure of her citizens. Today, America's sons and daughters uphold those same ideals while serving at home and abroad. Events like this reinforce the bond between our surrounding communities and with those of us in and out of uniform who serve at Fort Bragg. Our common history is a proud one that marks 100 years on September 4, when Camp Bragg was established in 1918 as an artillery training ground and has since evolved into the proud home of conventional, airborne, and special operations forces. We will continue to prepare and act to defend our Nation and her citizens, but we cannot do it without the support of our Families and communities -- Thank you."

Airborne, All the Way
This We'll Defend!
