XVIII Airborne Corps was formed on 25 August 1944 at Ogbourne, St. George, England, assuming command of the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions, as part of the preparation for Operation Market Garden.
The corps was commanded by Major General James M. Gavin of the 82nd Airborne when all American airborne units on the Western Front fell under command of the corps. XVIII Airborne Corps planned and executed Operation Varsity, it was one of the largest airborne operations of the war.
We honor them with a new rendition of the significant sky dragon that has been around since World War 2.
