The 82nd Airborne Division inducted the 2023 All American Hall of Fame Class during a ceremony on May 24, 2023 at Fort Bragg’s Hall of Heroes during All American Week. 

LTG (R) Freddy E. McFarren ’66 was among this year’s inductees. During his time in service, McFarren had a significant impact upon an innumerable number of lives. To many, he set the standard for what it means to be a Paratrooper by dedicating his time and energy in the All-American Division to develop the best Paratroopers in the Division. McFarren commanded 1-319th AFAR from December 1982 to December 1984. During this time, he deployed the battalion to Grenada for Operation Urgent Fury, the Army’s first combat deployment since Vietnam. McFarren served as the 82nd Airborne Division Chief of Staff from November 1988 to September 1989. Less than 90 days later, the Division jumped into Panama as part of Operation Just Cause. His organizational skills and his leadership in that position set the conditions for the Division’s success in its first combat jump since Operation Market-Garden in World War II.
