    Paratroopers showcase versatility during winter airborne operation

    Paratroopers assigned to Chosen Company, 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade, prepare to board a C-130 Hercules aircraft during an airborne operation departing from Riga International Airport in Riga, Latvia, Jan. 11, 2017. Freezing conditions honed the Paratroopers’ ability to conduct operations in harsh environments and in support of Latvian forces. The ‘Sky Soldiers’ of 2nd Bn., 503rd Inf. Regt. are on a training rotation in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve, a U.S. led effort in Eastern Europe that demonstrates U.S. commitment to the collective security of NATO and dedication to enduring peace and stability in the region. The 173rd Airborne Brigade, based in Vicenza, Italy, is the Army Contingency Response Force in Europe, and is capable of projecting forces to conduct a full range of military operations across the United States European, Central and Africa Command areas of responsibility within 18 hours.
