Lt. Gen. Lloyd J. Austin III
U.S. Army XVIII Airborne Corps commander, Lt. Gen. Lloyd J. Austin III.

"The things we are held accountable for day in and day out as the 18th Airborne Corps, is to be able to deploy anywhere in the world on a moment's notice to do just about anything. We are a rapid deployment force. We're a headquarters that is designed to go and take control over a number of different types of elements: divisions, brigades, whatever. That won't change; you know we will remain a forcible entry organization for the foreseeable future."
