Thanks for posting those pics Rav !
Brings back many memories of good times, good Brothers, and serving my country.
You are welcome :)
I have a friend new to the 82nd who participated in this jump. Nice to see some pics, thx 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.
one more pic :)
Still 82nd but a bit different story...
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.
Great pics Rav!
Amazing pictures! Thanks.
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.
Again not Ft. Bragg but the 82nd never-the-less
Great photos — AIRBORNE All The way
This time from Pope Air Force Base
What good memories. Thank you.
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 :)

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?
