Fayetteville is a Military Town, Through and Through. Fort Bragg is the largest Army installation home of the 82nd Airborne Division. Ever heard of Iron Mike? The Airborne Trooper, aka Iron Mike, stands guard over the entrance to the Airborne & Special Operations Museum. He’s over 16’ tall and a little intimidating, holding a Tommy Gun. Just so you know, there is no special “Mike” in town—he’s a general tribute to all paratroopers. Babe Ruth hit his very first home run in Fayetteville at the age of 19.
