Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, with Stonewall Jackson, is not only my favorite, but probably one of the best ever.

Also, the Spartans at Thermopylae and other engagements against the Persians were awesome[/quote]

I am new to the forum and this is my first post (not that anyone really cares about that...)

I have several favorites:

1) The 1st brigade of the 1 division of the I corp of the Grand Army of the Republic - The Iron Brigade.

2) The Stonewall brigade of the Army of Northern Virginia - The Foot Cavelry.

3) Of course, the 101st Airborne Division

4) The 1st Infanigtry Division - The Big Red One

5) And in honor of my ancestors - ANY Highland Unit!!!

Sorry - I had to put that last one in...

Check that out for some news about some Scotsmen.

How about heading to the Welcoming Center and giving us an introduction?

After serving with the 101st, of course Im going to go with them

Not just joining the bandwagon, but they have a Rendezvous with Destiny. (plug plug lol) Whether its Bastogne and MG McAuliffe replying "nuts" to an order to surrender, the history of Old Abe the eagle, or the air assault down the Euphrates river valley (as the 3/320th motto went shortly after the return to Ft Campbell... "Thunder in the Valley!"), these were my heroes even before I found out what a drill sergeant was all about and still my most memorable unit when I was active duty. Now Im a part timer with my air assault wings as a reminder to my past with this wonderful unit.

It's not a unit, but my fav is the entire Luftwaffe.

No particular reason, I just happen to like the German Air Force.
