Paratroopers jump on Everleigh Drop Zone; Salisbury Glen, England

Spc. Louis Alanso, 478th Civil Affairs Battalion out of Miami, Fla., packs up his parachute after successfully completing an airborne operation during Operation Airdrop Warrior in England, May 27. Operation Airdrop Warrior consisted of both American and British soldiers, equipment and aircrafts. American Soldiers were trained up on the British low-level parachutes, while British soldiers learned how to properly use the American T-10s. Prior to gearing up, each soldier learned how the other country's equipment was packed, how it operated, and how to use it safely and successfully. The operation is preparation for the 68th anniversary ceremonies of D-Day in Normandy, France.
