Landing On Our Feet - 2022 & Beyond

Recommended Posts




        First and foremost Paratroopers, Merry Christmas. It is a blessing to have you all through the holidays, your spirit, your dedication, your unwavering loyalty, all of you. This community, as we always state - would not be here without you. As we step off from our first year as a unit and approach our second year steadily - there are lot of things that are to be addressed. This announcement serves as a recognition of the rocky climb 2021 has been, and the rocky climb it will always continue to be. There is only one way from here: upwards.

       First off - the community has dealt with its Holiday Period well, although we still reside in our December stand-down: spirits and attendance remain high. Thank you all for this, it's very much appreciated - we know this vigorous devotion will grow evermore. Moving forward, we want to address a recurring issue we've dealt with from the start. Private Trainees that have joined have had an extreme attrition rate. Although we expect this, it's much higher than anticipated - we understand your concerns clearly. However, we are doing a lot to rectify this problem. We're in the process of revamping our Recruitment & Retention sector of Staff. We're providing more incentives to see these individuals stay, and want to show them we care. But we can't do that alone - we need you to help too. Every Paratrooper can help in his own way:  showcasing the unit values and exhibiting the traits of a Paratrooper in all aspects. We all know how we can do better, lets help each other moving forward. 

        Beyond the rocky waters of retention, practice's and attitude comes to mind. Although as a unit we exuberate a high Espirit De Corps and professionalism, some of us still remain more negative or expose immaturity to others. As a community - it is important we recognize who we say we are, and who we practice in reality. Not only is it important for others to see the truth, but its important we move beyond our own veil of perception and become more open to what lies ahead. We must check ourselves, and each other: improving daily. As we continue to grow: certain attitudes, certain sayings, ideas and practices will only bring about a downfall of our strengths and pride - the community itself. As we move forward, spend time rehearsing your personality and treatment of others, recognize the rules and regulations we have as a community - and above all apply the traits of a Paratrooper in all aspects of our community.

       An exciting time to be in this unit, following our first year of operations. We've developed quite a fluid and professional S-2 Intelligence team, improving our missions and learning new things along the way. We have a lot of operations moving forward - a lot of which you can see on our Calendar currently. This year, we will be taking it upon ourselves to utilize the website more often. Announcements for missions, trainings, meetings, important information and other discussions will be on here. Make sure to check back frequently... and get excited for what lies ahead!

        Finally, you may be questioning the title of this post - Route to Destiny. An astute name, a play on the motto of the 101st Airborne Division. As ascertained prior, there is only one way from here: upwards. We have experimented with multiple detachments in our third and fourth quarter of 2021, and decided what we want to do moving forward. We've opened up new efforts to develop our own addons for our community. We've seen what is coming for the World War II community in ArmA III. The future is bright, and it only grows brighter. From the start, its been our objective to maintain an authentic and realistic atmosphere for a World War II Airborne community - remaining professional to one another, respectful to those that have come before: and upholding the values of our community. Lets keep doing that, moving forward.



First Lieutenant Charles Henderson
