Operation Toy Drop is a family-friendly event; spouses, children and friends gathered at a viewing area on the drop zone to watch their loved ones jump from C-130 aircrafts onto Sicily Drop Zone, Dec. 7. 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.
