Paratroopers from across the globe prepare for a holiday tradition

Jumpmasters and soldiers from nine different countries joined U.S. jumpmasters in parachute familiarization in preparation of the 16th Annual Randy Oler Memorial Operation Toy Drop, Dec. 2. The training involved trying on the different parachutes the U.S. offers, the procedures to operate the parachutes and simulation of landing the parachutes. Operation Toy Drop is the world's largest combined airborne operation hosted by a U.S. Reserve unit, the U.S. Army Civil Affairs & Psychological Operations Command (Airborne). The event allows soldiers the opportunity to help bring toys to children less fortunate during the holiday. (U.S. Army Photo by Staff Sgt. Sharilyn Wells/USACAPOC(A) PAO)
