Regarding the "Screaming Eagles" and other notes on the naming of military units 


Have you ever wondered why the United States Army has an "82nd Airborne" division, a "10th Mountain" division, but no units in between? Here's a short essay on the naming of military units and the preservation of their tradition.

Sadly, no mention of the illustrious 205th Infantry Brigade (Separate and Light).

I've subscribedto the idea that the Active Component modular brigades should be named for past divisions. It's already confusing in the press to wade through mentions of 4th Brigade with no accomanying Division affiliation to find out who is being talked about. And it's a successful model used in the National Guard (my own 45th Brigade as an example). The Modular Brigade seems like an extension of the Enhanced Separate Brigade concept from the Guard to Active anyway.

This would perpetuate the lineages of many more divisions than would otherwise.
