Camp Toccoa Memorial

Paratroopers in training ran from the camp up the mountain and back, memorialized in the HBO series, Band of Brothers, with the shout "three miles up, three miles down." Members of the 506th refer to themselves as "Currahees", which means, from the original Cherokee, "we stand alone".
