The youngest jumpers are ROTC Cadets, who have completed US Army Airborne School, to our senior members who are now in their eighties. The membership is largely constituted of Combat Veterans, who further exemplify themselves by continuing to display the parachuting skills learned while in the Armed Services.
The Brigade will be jumping a WWII vintage C47 Sky Train, Aircraft, used in WWII to transport our Airborne Forces to Drop Zones in Europe, Asia and the Pacific, where our Paratroops “jumped, and defeated our enemies, helping to bring about the conclusion of hostilities which had consumed the world, and brought about peace and stability once again.
