The regiment was initially formed during WWII in 1942 where it earned its nickname, "Currahees", after the camp's Currahee Mountain. Paratroopers in training ran up Currahee Mountain and back with the shout "three miles up, three miles down!". The Cherokee word, which translates to "Stand Alone", also became the unit's motto. The 506th is a proud and historic unit and we are thrilled to put a modern touch on this design.
