Artist's Description

The 3rd Battalion, 187th Infantry Regiment, “Iron Rakkasans”, is a battalion of the U.S. Army 187th Infantry Regiment. The battalion was activated February 25, 1943, and first saw action in the Pacific Theater during World War II, during the battle to regain U.S. control of the Philippines. Troops from the battalion then served in the four-year occupation of Japan, where they earned their nickname “Rakkasans” (meaning “falling down umbrellas”), before stationing in Fort Campbell, Kentucky. The battalion served in the Korean War from 1950 as the 187th Airborne Regimental Combat Team and participated in 12 major missions during the Vietnam War, emerging from that conflict as the U.S.’s most highly decorated airborne battalion. In the 1990s the battalion served in Iraq as part of Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm, and in Afghanistan and Iraq as part of Operation’s Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom.
