2013 Operation Toy Drop

Paratroopers jump from from a C-130 into the clouds during Operation Toy Drop, Dec. 7, on Sicily Drop Zone. Weather postponed the airborne operation by a few hours, but paratroopers were finally allowed to jump onto the drop zone. Hosted by the U.S. Army Civil Affairs & Psychological Operations Command (Airborne), the 16th Annual Randy Oler Operation Toy Drop is the largest combined airborne operation in the world, with nine allied countries participating. A paratrooper donated a new, unwrapped toy in exchange for a lottery ticket for the chance of jumping with allied jumpmasters, earning themselves foreign jumpwings. (U.S. Army photo by Staff Sgt.
