Become a Member of the
Scions of the 17th Airborne!
Our mission is to ensure that the sacrifice and history of the 17th Airborne Division is not forgotten.
Distinguished Honorary Members
All veterans of the 17th are considered as "Distinguished Honorary Members" of the Scions. We exist to honor you, our veterans.
We do not ask for dues from our honored veterans, as we exist to honor you!
Individual and Family Memberships in the "Scions of the 17th Airborne" are available to any descendant or family member of any trooper who served with the 17th during its existence.
Associate Membership is available to individuals who have an interest in the history of the 17th Airborne, but are not related to a veteran of the 17th. Associate Members do not have voting rights.
