Re: Jump School Today
Mid to late 80s, I wore my Cochrans whenever I could in garrison weather permitting since I was the O6's high speed driver. We also gained authorization to wear Jungle boots up in Alaska in the summer, which was helpful due to the soggy conditions of the muskeg we ran around on. Our new O6 asked my opinion if 1st Bde should be allowed Jungle boots once the CG authorized them for the 6 ID(L). I'd like to think I was instrumental in helping the Col. form his opinion.
