  • In Jewish, Christian, and Muslim tradition, 'Fallen Angels' were angels in heaven who rebelled against God. 'Falling Angels' was a name proudly assigned to the 11th Airborne Division* during World War Two. In several instances when this division successfully rescued victims by parachute in the South Pacific, the rescued said that men in parachutes at a distance in the sky appeared to resemble 'angels' – the parachute looking like wings! On February 23, 1945, in the early morning hours, my family and many others were rescued by the 11th Airborne and Filipino Scouts, the former having dropped from airplanes in sync with the guerilla Scouts on the ground.
