    Thanks, Rav!

    Although, I'm wondering which DZ that tower is on. I'm sure it's been built since I left in '02. Prolly Sicily or Holland. They were "re-doing" Holland when I left....so that's my bet.

    Again, great pics, Rav.

    GEN Shelton used to like to say that Ft. Bragg is the center of the universe. I always preferred wearing the maroon beret.

    Rav, those are impressive photos!

    Brought a better perspective for me just seeing the scale of paratrooper exiting an aircraft.

    The sensory impact of soldiers returning home to the arms of their elated families brought more than a few tears here.

    Great pics. There's nothing as impressive as a big unit parachute jump.

    My wife still says there was nothing scarier than being on the DZ during a night drop... just hearing a couple planes fly overhead, then a couple minutes later being suprised by a squad of Rangers moving to their ORP... scared the ever living shit out of her :)

    Post #14 \ Picture 2

    What are the woodland bags? Are those some of standard jump stowage bags for all the different kinds of rucks and such folks are carrying now?

    And pardon a web-footed Marine for asking the purpose of the geometric shapes taped to the sides of the helmet. For recognition?
