82nd Airborne News

In April, the 82nd Airborne Division was informed that they would be shipping overseas. They left Fort Bragg on April 17, 1943 under orders that any insignia was to be taken off or not visible. To the troopers disgust, their pants were not to be bloused. Their beloved jump boots were to be covered by their trousers or regular infantry leggings.

Their troop train arrived at Camp Edwards, Massachusetts for a brief stay before heading to New York. The time at Camp Edwards was filled with lectures, inspections, and innoculations. The Division finally arrived at the New York Port of Embarkation on April 28th where they would board the numerous ships that would sail them across the Atlantic. Upon boarding the ship, any expectations of a luxurious trip went out the window.

The 29th would finally see the Division underway. Not knowing their destination or how long their trip would be, they tried to stay busy and keep themselves entertained. Movies were available, as well as troops participating in boxing and wrestling. Meals would be eaten while standing, and only twice a day. Showers were in short supply also, due to fresh water being in short supply. Their showers, when available, would be taken with salt water. Their trip across the Atlantic would take eleven days with the Division unsure of what would lie ahead.
