OTH-112 The Airborne Troops of Russia book
The Airborne troops of Russia that might be called the "winged infantry", "the blue berets" or any other epithets that Guardian Airborne forces were awarded by. But in all times in spite of different circumstances the power, the bravery and the reliability of people who live with the slogan "No one but we!" were always stayed.
Since the first day of its foundation, August,2 1930 when the first Airborne units was baled out on the Moscow Military District exercises, the Airborne forces became the troops of the "first line". They were able to fulfill any kind of task even if it was considered the impossible one.
To understand the secret of the Airborne fraternity means to try yourself on hard, sometimes even extremely dangerous service at the "windy infantry" with its continuous joy and sorrows, burdens of military training and the moments of flight under the cupola of parachute that cannot be compared to anything else. The combat Airborne fraternity can be defined as the feeling of comradeship in a line, readiness to help at any moment, a wish to protect the friend from a bullet or to stick to the shroud lines of parachute trying to held the falling parachute cupola of a friend. The Airborne fraternity is the feeling of common unity of the people of all generations including the grey-haired soldiers of GreatPatriotic warI and "beardless" boys who just did their first jump with a parachute. That feeling cannot be compared to anything.
Today when we stay on the threshold of the third millennium it's absolutely impossible not to say about the senior generations of the land troops soldiers whose feats of arms at the fields of Great Patriotic war created the heroic military image for the troops. We also cannot fail to mention those ones who used the strength of their talent and "dress up" the airborne Airborne troops into the armour, to equip them by the modern systems for attack and protection. That helped to turn the troops into the powerful, mobile and highly efficient unit of the Army.
Due its traditions, sense or military purpose, Airborne troops always appeared to be in those points where it's hard or even impossible to be. The song says "There is the Airborne troops and no one task cannot be performed by them..." The mountain paths of Afghan War, "the hot spot", "the peacemaking operations", Chechen war - that's all places where the Airborne troops were the first and they always were winners.
"VDV, the Voiska Dadya Vasya (The Troops of Uncle Vasya)" - so the soldiers call themselves. And that phrase has the main sense that includes the readiness to act due an order at any time of aday and the special proud to be the part of a Airborne fraternity. And also they show the special love and respect to the person who gave himself to serve the troops, its Commander, the Army General Vasily P. Margelov, "the legendary person", the service man #1 of the Airborne troops. Only his will, persistence and insistency to reach the purpose that provided the wide-range re-armament and helped to introduce the new methods and means for Airborne and also to create the potential to resolve the problems nearly in all points of the Earth.
During the seventy years of its glorious history the airborne Airborne troops wrote a lot of bright pages of courage, honour and bravery into the book of the military history of the Russian Army. Millions and millions of Russian citizens passed through the stern school of the Airborne forces services and August, 2 is stated as the people's holiday not in worth.
That book is the so-called requiem to the memory of the fallen heroes which names should not be forgotten. That book is the book of the glory and prowess of the living ones, the book of the current generation of the Airborne troops servicemen. And finally the book is for growing generation. There is no present and no future without past. And the future of our state means the future of its Army, the future of airborne Airborne troops.
