  82. AIRBORNE DIVISION WW2
"All American Division"

The division insignia consists of the letters "AA" inscribed in white on a blue circle, which in turn is superimposed on a bright red square background. The 82d Infantry Division in World War I was comprised of soldiers from every state in the Union and therefore, the nickname "All American" was adopted and "AA" was included in the insignia. When in 1942 the 82d was reactivated and made airborne, the word "Airborne", in white letters, was placed on a crescent-shaped blue background, and added to the top of the insignia.
