Over 1300 of the 1800 were able to jump before the ceiling dropped and the AMC ceased all operations. Unfortunately we were unable to move the remaining chalks to tomorrow due to more bad weather with low ceiling in the forecast and Corps being unwilling to get more chutes wet. It was still the most dropped on the big day at Toy Drop........ Will start jumping again on Monday to start SOF week.
Some pics would be nice. So it rained this year too? It rained bad last year on Saturday and we jumped Sunday. Did any site members run into each other out there?
Saw it on Fox and Friends Saturday. They had a Sgt. (who received 2 Purple Hearts) and a Gen.(who I believe) commands the 82nd. Great interview- showed a HALO drop and than jumpers in the background as they spoke.
Great idea and great PR for the Airborne.
" Get out of that door you Goddamn piece of shit" and than I felt the kick of the boot on my skinny ass and the small of my back- it broke my grasp of the tower door and out I went screaming like a little girl
Forgot to mention the fox interview..... it was good publicity but Fox got their info all jacked. The SSG is the PJ for the ABN operation and the 2 Star is the guy with the two Purple Hearts. He's the CG for USACAPOC(A).
Thanks!Congrats on those Irish Wings Bro
Any link to the FOX video?

"SF doesn't do harassment. No encouragement; no discouragement. You cannot be in SF if you do not set your own standards. Nobody sets it for you. They just watch what you do. If you rest when you should be working, if you drink when you should be humping, if you let your buddy carry a load too heavy for him - you're gone. No questions, just you're gone. They don't need you."
Does anyone have a POC within USACAPOC(A) that I could get the manifest from?
I put in the request to get verified yesterday, haven't received anything regarding it yet.
I was told the manifest would go back to the POC's once they all get signed by the JM's. She said it would take about 2 weeks to get them out. Hopefully I get a copy from the Div Air since they are the ones who got me the hard slot.
Another chance at the Thai wings on Fri for me. Rolled the dice and got another slot with my unit. Hopefully the weather holds up. Earle

Anyone planning to jump tomorrow?
