Texas Army National Guard jump at JBSA-Camp Bullis

By Johnny Saldivar and Jose A. Torres Jr. 502nd Air Base Wing Public Affairs

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.
