I got this from an old Airborne buddy.  I jumped at Sicily Drop Zone several times.  It is the main drop zone at Ft. Bragg.


Fellow Troopers and Friends,

I found this on the Internet and found it to be a very good video clip on the normal training of the 82nd Airborne Division paratroopers.  The one thing that was sort of out of the norm was that the jump was a "Hollywood" jump, that is without full combat gear and weapons.  Often this occurs when there isn't a tactical training mission going on, or the people need to make a jump to maintain their jump pay (one jump at least every three months).  I never was a pay hurt because the 325th Airborne Infantry kept us to about one jump per month (and then there was the time when we jumped twice in one day - that was ironic, a practice jump and then a demonstration jump for the King of Afghanistan in 1964).  We could never get over why that was done.  A jump is a jump is a jump.
