Paratroopers Don’t Travel Light.

Guam National Guard Supports Operation Spartan Flex

( U.S. Army photo by Captain Mark Scott)

We’ve run lots of photos of parachutists here at 4GWAR of the years, but this is one of the first to show a closeup view of a paratrooper while descending. Note all the kit he’s coming down with.

This photo was taken June 30, 2020 as U.S. Army paratroopers from the 25th Infantry Division’s 4th Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), jumped from an Air Force C-17 Globemaster cargo aircraft during training at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam.

The jump was part of Spartan Flex, an operation to exercise joint capabilities in the Indo-Pacific region.
