    20 FEB 2021 Message from the Association President

    With most of the nation in the icy grip of winter the question becomes, “How many Sky Soldiers are in need of assistance? A better question is “How can I be of assistance?”

    I encourage all Sky Soldiers to reach out, at the chapter level, and check on your brothers in Arms. If you’re unaware of any Sky Soldiers in your area you can connect on electronic media such as Facebook, Twitter, or even our own website at SkySoldier.net. You can use this link to determine who is your chapter president https://www.skysoldier.net/Chapters-and-Chapter-Presidents

    No matter if it’s on social media or the old-fashioned telephone —reach out—Connect! If you need help—connect! Or if your situation is secure; reach out to help someone else get through these tough times. 

    We are a special breed of soldier who is independent but who steps forward to help in times like this. No matter if you’re a 20thor 21st Century Sky Soldier it’s still “One Team —One Fight!”   tom173sky@aol.com

    Thomas S. McMahon,


    173rd Airborne Brigade Association
