Go with what you want. Just remember you will go through Air Assault school if you join the Screaming Eagles. Check out this site for the 101st. They are a very prestigous bunch of guys.

Good luck with your decision.

The Air Defense it actually part of the army and falls under the Artillery.

Another good thing to remember is the higher you score on the Armed Service Vocational Apptitude Battery (ASVAB), the more jobs that you will be allowed to choose from. I have actually been selected to attend certain schools because of my ASVAB score, and I took that in 1997 and it still affects career decisions today such as Noncomissioned Officers Education Schools (NCOES). This is for the United States Military by the way. Just to clarify for everyone else. Feel free to PM me for more information about the Army as a career. I will field your questions at work from more senior NCOs to get you the best answers.

The 101st is one on the most decorated divisions in the US Army. I think they have the most awards of any unit during WWII.

Well the 101st are in movies, video games and are well known for their involvement in D-day, market garden and Bastogne.... Of course they would be the most decorated.

The 101st still do parachuting or do they use helicopters for airbourne transport nowdays?

Primarily Air Assault (helicopters)

If you want to be airborne go to the 82nd. They are primarily parachuting.
