Screaming Eagles: U.S. Army Parachute Demo Team

The 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) Command Parachute Demonstration Team, the “Screaming Eagles”, is a full time aerial demonstration unit in the United States Army. Headquartered at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, the soldiers who make up the Screaming Eagles come from diverse backgrounds and hold various military occupational skills.

The team can trace its history as far back as the late 1950s, during the infancy of precision freefall. The original team members were a group of soldiers who volunteered their personal time to practice and perform quality parachute demonstrations. Noticing the success, the command group opted to form a full time team in 1984.
