325 AIR (Falcon Brigade) was the first brigade in GULF 1 on the ground in Saudi, as it was the rapid response brigade on alert when Saddam went in. Ditto for Operation Iraqi Freedom (when I was with them. 325 was part of the initial invasion in March 2003). Because it's an Airborne Infantry Regiment, not a Parachute Infantry Regiment, it gets a lot of stick in the division. WWII airborne units had Parachute Infantry and Glider Infantry. WHen they got rid of the gliders and made them parachutist, they designated all post-WWII units Airborne Infantry Regiments. So, the other two PIRs in the Division (504th PIR (Devils in Baggy Pants) and 505th PIR (Panther Brigades)) tend to look down on the 325, but it has always done very well for itself.
3/325 has the dubious honor of being the "Blue Falcons" as 82nd convention has 1st BN "Red [mascot]", 2nd "WHite", and 3rd "Blue." For those of you not up on the lingo, Blue Falcon is also code for Buddy Fucker, someone who screws someone over, either intentionally or because they are just a substandard soldier. Brawls start when other units joke about Blue Falcons being Buddy Fuckers in their presence.
