The Making History Project will attend the 2017 Reunion for the 508 P.I.R. in Fort Bragg.

The 2017 Reunion for the Family & Friends of the 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment will be held in Fayetteville, North Carolina (Fort Bragg) on October 19, 2017 through October 21, 2017. This year will mark the 75th anniversary of the activation of the 508 P.I.R. Based on that, there is no better place to have the reunion than in Fort Bragg, the home of the 82nd Airborne.

Based on the success of last year, the current soldiers of the 508 P.I.R. will participate once again. Better yet, the group will spend one day on the base with the active duty paratroopers and will tour the 82nd Airborne Museum.
