    Support Soldiers partner with National Guard for sling load training

    Paratroopers hook a sling-loaded Humvee to the underside of a UH-60 Black Hawk during sling load training, July 31. Paratroopers assigned to 407th Brigade Support Battalion, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, partnered with members of the North Carolina National Guard to conduct the training with the rotary-wing aircraft. While these paratroopers continually train to be proficient at sling load operations, this exercise was an opportunity for the support specialists to actually hook the load to the underside of the helicopter as it hovers only feet above their heads. Sling load operations are essential to the mission, because they enable vehicles, water and supplies to be transported to soldiers.
