Panther Brigade Celebrates Centurion Jump

Sgt. Maj. Steven Noonan, the 3rd Brigade Combat Team’s Operations Sergeant Major, became the 82nd Airborne Division’s newest Centurion after completing his 100th static-line parachute operation early Sept. 21, 2018 jumping onto Fort Bragg’s Sicily Drop Zone.

Noonan has served in the 504th, 505th and 508th Parachute Infantry Regiments during his career and completed the nighttime combat jump with other members of the brigade to rehearse Assault Command Post operations.

Congrats to the Panther EIB Recipients

Congratulations to the 24 Panther paratroopers who earned their Expert Infantryman Badge in late August!

These paratroopers demonstrated their mastery at a myriad of skills, tasks, drills and physical endurance tests to earn the badge.

Of the 24, five of them were True-Blue, having passed each evaluation on the first attempt.
