Stand up, hook up, shuffle to the door...

One of the guys over at Op-For just graduated from Airborne School and he has this video posted there that brought back some memories. I graduated from Airborne School in July 1992 right after completing infantry Basic/AIT at Ft. Benning. That was a great summer. I was in the best shape of my life and finally free of drill sergeants and the constraints of basic training and learning to jump out of airplanes, what could be better than that. Unfortunately those five jumps at Airborne School were my last, since the Army sent me to the 25th ID rather than an airborne unit as I had hoped when I signed up. But I suppose being stationed in Hawaii was an acceptable alternative.
