A CO is going to be famous...
Check out these sweet photos from a night of dancing, desserts, and photo booths during the #1Panther Sweetheart Dance at the Pope Family Readiness Center, Fort Bragg, N.C., 9 Feb.
Congratulations to CPT Jordan Weber and the Weber Family on a successful command of D CO! We are glad you are staying a member of the team and taking command of HHC on 2 FEB.
Welcome to the Gabbard Team, CPT Mike and Amanda Gabbard. CPT Gabbard assumed command of D CO from CPT Weber.
Congratulations to 1 Panther paratroopers SGT Smith (11B- D CO), SPC Welch (92Y- D CO), SPC McKee (11B- HHC), and SPC Lawrence (11B- B CO) for earning their Ranger Tab and graduating the US Army Ranger School today! Phenomenal!
The roads are dangerous and it's a cold one, All Americans. We just braved the conditions to take this picture of Sicily Drop Zone this morning.
So, about wh...at you've been waiting for....mission essential Paratroopers only report today. So, who is "mission essential" you ask. Well, we are the 82nd Airborne Division, the Nation's 9-1-1, so we are all mission essential. See you at work.
No, just kidding. Seriously, no joke: your chain-of-command will contact you if you are considered critical and must report to work today. Short of that, please stay home and be safe. Fort Bragg schools are closed. Unfortunately, all the gyms will be closed. Many of the roads leading to Fort Bragg from the surrounding areas are frozen and temperatures will not get above freezing until about 10 am, so be careful!
Sorry for the delay, but there are many parts that had to be coordinated with.
Fort Bragg will operate under normal status on Monday, Jan. 8 .
Fort Bragg school...s will be closed for all students, but staff should report to work.
All Fort Bragg Family and MWR Child Youth Service facilities will be closed. This includes all CDCs.

If you’re on Fort Bragg, boil the water before drinking or drink bottled water until further notice.
We have some clarification on the boil water notice. Linden Oaks is NOT AFFECTED, nor is Camp Mackall and the Aberdeen Training Facility.
As for Bragg schools, ...CDCs, DFACs and fast food restaurants and WAMC and the dental clinics on Bragg, once we know how this will impact them, we’ll let you know.
