CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

The First Allied Airborne Army visited WBTV News Sunday Morning. 

The F.A.A.A. is an umbrella organization of three reenacting units centered in central North Carolina.   They represent: 

  *   F Company of the 325th Glider Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division, United States Army

  *   H Company of the 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division, United States Army

  *   C Company of the Royal Ulster Rifles, 6th Air Landing Brigade, 6th Airborne Division, British Army

The First Allied Airborne Army (Reenacted) fosters and preserves the history of the units they reenact by enhancing the public's understanding of the American and British paratrooper and the glider man's contributions during World War II through historically accurate reenactments, camp demonstrations, tactical reenactments, educational displays, military drills, parades, memorial ceremonies, and civilian activities.
