HALO Hello.

Southern Strike 17

U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Trevor T. McBride.

It looks like one Naval Special Warfare member is saying to a comrade “Come on in, the water’s fine!” as he leaps from an Air Force MC-130 Combat Talon II during a high-altitude, low-opening jump over Gulfport, Mississippi.

The air borne insertion was part of Southern Strike 17,  a multi-service exercise emphasizing air-to-air, air-to-ground and special operations forces training.

The Mississippi Air National Guard’s Combat Readiness Training Center hosted the  two-week exercise which ended Friday. About 2,000 personnel from 51 units representing all of the armed services participated.
