National Airborne Day is celebrated on August 16th annually. Designated by the U.S Congress, this holiday honors the nation's airborne divisions of the Armed Forces.

"The Army's Airborne Rangers and the Army Golden Knights parachute team are among the best-known American paratrooper organizations, and the accomplishments of Army paratroopers are noted across more than seven decades of service including the Iraq war in 2003."
