I don't think you're any older than I am. When y'all jumped into Vitina I was between trips to Bosnia. I followed the bombing campaign and I remember the Russians making the run from northeast Bosnia down to Pristina and beating the Americans to the airport. I don't recall heading about y'alls jump at that time. When I was in Bosnia in 1998, I believe it was around that time 173rd was reactivated in Vicenza. On my trip in 2000 elements of the 173rd jumped in near the Tuzla airbase with Italian airborne troops. I remember people in my unit having to coordinate with the electric company to temporarily kill some power lines just to be safe. I'm not entirely sure where the guys from Third Herd jumped into in the fall of 2001. Judging from their BDUs the drop zone was pretty muddy.
Have a great day!
Thank you for your time. I enjoy your articles and your Q&A today! T3
