    Those are Nurses from Womack. Their Major believes they will have a better understanding of what their patients go through and how they get injured if they are exposed to some of the same training. They will never jump from an aircraft, or be Airborne.

    Great work, you bring back alot of memories.

    Back in 2002 we have family day at Advanced Airborne school and I was able to send my wife out of the 32ft tower.

    Keep posting these as you can.

    My cousin just PCS'd home from Bragg. Airborne. Hadn't seen his mom since I got out of the USAF in 1983. He and his wife drove out to G'boro a few times while he was at Bragg.
    I said he was on the ingredient list of the "can of whoopass." :)

    Captain Fritz's Medal of Honor citation reads:

    For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty. Capt. (then 1st Lt.) Fritz, Armor, U.S. Army, distinguished himself while serving as a platoon leader with Troop A, near Quần Lợi. Capt. Fritz was leading his 7-vehicle armored column along Highway 13 to meet and escort a truck convoy when the column suddenly came under intense crossfire from a reinforced enemy company deployed in ambush positions. In the initial attack, Capt. Fritz' vehicle was hit and he was seriously wounded. Realizing that his platoon was completely surrounded, vastly outnumbered, and in danger of being overrun, Capt. Fritz leaped to the top of his burning vehicle and directed the positioning of his remaining vehicles and men. With complete disregard for his wounds and safety, he ran from vehicle to vehicle in complete view of the enemy gunners in order to reposition his men, to improve the defenses, to assist the wounded, to distribute ammunition, to direct fire, and to provide encouragement to his men. When a strong enemy force assaulted the position and attempted to overrun the platoon, Capt. Fritz manned a machine gun and through his exemplary action inspired his men to deliver intense and deadly fire which broke the assault and routed the attackers. Moments later a second enemy force advanced to within 2 meters of the position and threatened to overwhelm the defenders. Capt. Fritz, armed only with a pistol and bayonet, led a small group of his men in a fierce and daring charge which routed the attackers and inflicted heavy casualties. When a relief force arrived, Capt. Fritz saw that it was not deploying effectively against the enemy positions, and he moved through the heavy enemy fire to direct its deployment against the hostile positions. This deployment forced the enemy to abandon the ambush site and withdraw. Despite his wounds, Capt. Fritz returned to his position, assisted his men, and refused medical attention until all of his wounded comrades had been treated and evacuated. The extraordinary courage and selflessness displayed by Capt. Fritz, at the repeated risk of his own life above and beyond the call of duty, were in keeping with the highest traditions of the U.S. Army and reflect the greatest credit upon himself, his unit, and the Armed Forces.[2]

    I'll never understand how men like him can walk with those massive brass cajones swinging between their loins...

    A Fuji finepix XP60. bought it from the Sears mark down missing parts stack for $40. At that price I thought if it filled with water the first time I wasn't out much.
    It is hard to work with, auto focus is slow and ify underwater. The chance it focuses enough to take a photo is about one in four. so you will shoot a lot and get nothing, and then shoot more and have blurs.
    But a few work.

    I tell you now I love the view from a C-130. It's just the coolest aircraft made.
