JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-CAMP BULLIS, Texas —

Texas Army National Guard Soldiers assigned to the 197th Special Troops Support Company at Joint Base San Antonio-Camp Bullis took part in airborne operations training Sept. 25.

Starting at JBSA-Lackland’s Kelly Field Annex, the Soldiers loaded onto a C-130J Super Hercules from the 317th Airlift Wing at Dyess Air Force Base, Texas, to complete static line jump training onto the drop zone at JBSA-Camp Bullis.

Soldiers assigned to airborne units must complete a parachute jump every three months to maintain their airborne status.
