The 101st Airborne Division or the "Screaming Eagles" is a specialized modular light infantry division of the US Army trained for air assault operations.

 

The Screaming Eagles has been referred to by journalists as "the tip of the spear" as well as one of the most potent and tactically mobile of the US Army's divisions. 

 

Recently, the 101st Airborne has been performing foreign internal defense and counterterrorism operations within Iraq and Afghanistan.
