101st conducts air assault training...side it time to convert them to being pure light fighters instead of air assault?

Note. The 18th Airborne Corps definitely has a pecking order. 82nd, then 10th Mtn and finally the 101st. The main problem for the 101st? Helicopters just aren't strategically mobile. 

I wonder if the Army shouldn't do one of two things. Either dump the Air Assault label attached them (well that's a DEFINITE thing they need to do regardless) and (1) convert them fully to an airborne unit or (2) convert them fully to being light fighters. Air Assault is so widespread in the Army now that's its hardly unique....devoting an entire division to a task that is "common" seems a waste. 

Personally I lean toward making them light fighters but I don't think it'll happen.
