LGOPs, an acronym from the airborne infantry community, stands for Little Groups of Paratroopers. In World War II, during airborne drops, troops would be scattered across the French or Italian countryside. They would quickly band together and begin wreaking havoc on the enemy forces, cutting communication lines, disabling tanks, and conducting ambushes. This ability came from the American culture of inspiring soldiers to take the initiative. It’s a reminder of the power of small groups of people in our civic life. A determined group of citizens can band together to affect change in their community. Join the little groups of people in your community and enjoy the impact of serving a cause greater than yourself.
