173d Airborne Brigade Association Foundation

  Welcome to the Foundation website


The Herd Foundation, incorporated as the 173d Airborne Brigade Association Foundation in 2006, is a 501 (C) (3) organization. The Foundation traces its roots to the 1970′s with simple donations earmarked for college scholarships. Over the years, the scholarship fund grew with more awards and then the world changed with 9-11 and the War on Terror was in full swing and the 173d Airborne Brigade jumped into Iraq. We learned from each deployment and the Foundation become a 501 (C)) (3) organization with a broader impact and scope in honoring and supporting past, present, and future generations of Sky Soldiers and their families. The “Herd” is a nickname used by pride by veterans and members of the 173d Airborne Brigade. The 173d Airborne Brigade Association Foundation is thus nicknamed the Herd Foundation to connect the rich heritage and legacy of courage and valor of the 173d Airborne Brigade across many generations of Sky Soldiers.

The Herd Foundation fulfills its mission by providing core signature programs: the 173d Airborne Wounded Warrior Project, Bereavement and Gold Star Program, and Scholarship grants.  The success of the Foundation is rooted in the dedication and commitment of the presidents, officers, and members of more than 25 active 173d Airborne Brigade Association Chapters across the United States, Europe, Australia and New Zealand and the close cooperation between the Foundation and the central command of the 173d Airborne Brigade Combat Team in Vicenza, Italy.
