173rd Airborne Brigade Jump Into Northern Iraq (2003) – YouTube

I never made it to airborne school, I went to Air Assault School where we learned to rappel out of helicopters and was MUCH more difficult than dope on a rope school, but I digress.  A night jump with a round parachute and loaded down with a ton of gear is scary enough, doing it into an enemy held airfield is………..well I can’t think of a big enough word for it but it takes big brass ones to to do what these guys do.      AIRBORNE!
