Spartan Paratroopers Conduct Airborne Operations

Paratroopers from 1st Battalion, 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division, “Spartan Brigade,” conducted an airborne operation into Malemute Drop Zone, Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, March 2, 2021. The Spartan Brigade is the only airborne infantry brigade combat team in the Arctic and Pacific theaters, providing the combatant commander with the unique capability to project an expeditionary force by air.

Only one airborne brigade for the Pacific region?  I thought the Army would have assigned another dedicated airborne unit but maybe they're just gonna flex the 82nd to cover both the 173rd in Italy and these bubbas in the Pacific.
