The months of May and June 1943, would be spent training in an area hand picked by the 82nd AB Commander, Genearl Matthew B. Ridgeway. It was the worst environment for training the troops, and that's why General Ridgeway picked it. The land was hard and rocky with dust blowing hot winds to make for the harshest elements imaginable.

After the injuries suffered by the demonstration jump for General Eisenhower and other dignitaries, as mentioned in the previous months history, replacements were brought in for those who would have lengthy recovery times and for the ones who wouldn't be returning at all. One of the troopers I have spoken with was originally assigned to the 101st AB, 2/501 PIR. The 82nd had pulled his Battalion to make the trip overseas with the All American Division for replacement purposes and were known as EGB's. When I asked him what EGB meant, he laughed and said, "We were Easy Goin' Bastards". Experiments were being made with jump loads of heavier equipment. It was decided that equipment such as mortars, larger machine guns, etc, would be dropped in seperate bundles to prevent more injuries. The paratroops were already jumping with loads weighing between 100 to 120 pounds. They also experimented with pushing a donkey, supplied with a cargo chute, out of a C47 in hopes that upon a successful landing the donkey could be used for transporation and hauling equipment. As you can imagine, the idea didn't work out too well when implimented and the plan was abandoned.

Most of what was learned during these months such as equipment loads, Troop Carrier formations and the like, would become Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for all U.S. airborne units. By the end of June the troopers were ready for anything. Their confidence was high and they were ready for anything the axis forces could throw at them. The time to prove themselves was soon approaching for these young men. All eyes would be upon them to prove that this new idea of a massive airborne assault could work.

If you are getting kicked after either, downloading a new map from the cod4 server or just trying to join.

We have found a solution:

1) Close down your COD4 Game.

2) Delete the 82ndab folder in your Mods directory where you installed cod4.

3) Delete the usermaps folder in your cod4 install directory.

4) Load COD4 and Join the COD4 Server, you will have to redownload the Mod, but it should only take about 2 minutes.

After a lengthy cruise across the Atlantic, the 82nd would arrive in Casablanca, French Morocco only to immediately gear up and march about 5 miles to Camp Don B. Passage. Following a short 2 night stay, the packed up their gear and boarded train cars called 40 & 8's. They were called 40 & 8's because they could hold 40 men or 8 horses, a real comfortable ride I'm sure. Their next stop, and final one for awhile, was Oujda, French Morocco where they set up camp just outside of the town. Needless to say, the 82nd didn't appreciate their new accommodations. They pitched their shelter halves for living quarters, drank water that was heavily chlorinated, and tried to enjoy the food that was quickly attacked by flies and blowing sand.

Training started immediately, usually lasting for 12 hours. At first they attempted to train during the day, but the 120 degree day's were unbearable. They remedied this by training during the night, leaving the troops to try and rest and sleep during the day; in the 120 degree heat. The 3rd Battalions of the 504PIR and 505PIR were to make a mass jump for Gen. Eisenhower and other high ranking officers and officials. 30 mph winds kicked up, which usually meant jumps were cancelled, but not this time. The pressure to perform for the dignitaries meant the show must go on. The mass jump was made, and many injuries were suffered. Most of the men were able to return to their duties, but some were injured so badly they were sent back to the States. Training would continue, with passes being handed out as well. Trips were made to Oujda, but the troops quickly found out there wasn't much to do there. The trip they would all at least be able to make once, was to the sea where they could get away from the heat and enjoy the cool waters of the Mediterranean. The training would come to an end by early July with the 82nd unaware that their first combat jump was soon approaching.
