The 1st and 2nd battalions of the 327th plus the 2nd battalion of the 502nd Infantry arrived in Vietnam
on the 29th of July 1965 as the 1st Brigade of the 101st Airborne Division. They quickly became known as “Nomads of Vietnam” for not having a base of operations for the first 6 months in country.
Little did they know that they would become the longest serving American outfit in Vietnam. 7/29/65 – 3/10/72.
During Operation Desert Storm the 327th engaged in the largest air assault operation in history. Seizing territory deep within Iraq
assured a quick and decisive victory.The latest engagement was the deployment to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
The 327th distinguished itself by engaging and killing the villainous sons of Saddam Hussein, Quday and Usay.
