Keep your fingers crossed.... info


So I got a jump coming up on Thursday, supposedly from a C-17. It's full combat with a TOT (Time on Target) of early afternoon. I have a camera I'm going to take with me, and dummy cord it to my big dumb self. As long as it doesnt burn in, or I don't land on it, I'll snag y'all some pics. I also wrote International Military Forums on a piece of cardboard so you guys can see that it's really me... LOL.

Keep your fingers crossed that the jump doesn't get scratched.

Yeah. And all you future paratroopers better get Airborne in your contract.

And shepards we shall be
For thee, My Lord, for thee
Power hath descended forth from thy hand
That our feet may quickly carry out thy command
So we shall flow a river forth to thee
And teeming with souls shall it ever be
In nomini Patri, et Fili, Spiritus Sancti

Sounds good 82nd. I can't wait to see the pics and I'll join Padre in that prayer for you. Be safe!

I hate newspapermen. They come into camp and pick up their camp rumors and print them as facts. I regard them as spies, which in truth, they are.

what, a prop blast?

If I am asked what we are fighting for, I can reply in two sentences. In the first place, to fulfil a solemn international obligation . . . an obligation of honor which no self-respecting man could possibly have repudiated. I say, secondly, we are fighting to vindicate the principle that small nationalities are not to be crushed in defiance of international good faith at the arbitrary will of a strong and overmastering Power.

Good luck, Mech. If you have to choose between landing on tgt and taking the perfect picture, hit the mark, man!


If you're going through hell . . . keep going.
