"Sweet is war to those who have never experienced it"
The Southern California Chapter 14 of the 173rd Airborne Brigade Association is one of 31 chapters located throughout the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Europe. It is our expressed mission to maintain and enrich the legacy established by our army society recognized as the first American ground unit in the Republic of Vietnam beginning May 5, 1965 and concluding in 1971.
Our duty continues as a new generation of Sky Soldier is now deployed at the forefront of the war on terrorism in the Middle East. We will support the divergent and moral needs of these active comrades. We will strive to strengthen the relationships between past and present warriors. We will ensure that every entitled member and their eligible dependents are apprised of all benefits accorded them through the Department of Veterans Affairs. We are charged with promoting our goodwill throughout the community by actively availing our time, real world experiences, and resources to those in need.
