82nd Airborne Patrolling Washington, DC

More than 2,000 paratroopers of the 82nd Airborne Division were flown into Washington April 6 to augment the Federal and National Guard units already on duty in riot-torn sections of the Capitol. The riots were a reaction to the assassination of Martin Luther King. While firemen in the background fight one of the many fires set by arsonists, Army troops are deployed to take up positions in the area.
