    Default Jumpmaster dance

    If you were a paratrooper you'll probably enjoy "The Jumpermaster Dance." If you weren't in the brotherhood it may not make any sense to you.

    We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
    For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
    Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
    This day shall gentle his condition:
    And gentlemen in England now a-bed
    Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
    And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
    That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.

    3/509 INF (AB).... Airborne airborne all the way, airborne airborne everyday. We like it here, we love it here, we finally found a home. A home, a home, we finally found a home.


    Good post! That's a really funny vid. It's old too, they are still wearing BDU's. It might not have been from Airborne school though. It was probably from jumpmaster school.

    Jumping in Alaska is fun most of the time... You have on a lot of cold weather gear that pads you, and you stick in the snow like a lawn dart. Not sure if you ever made it up there.

    jump in alaska? that's funny. i'm up here right now at fairbanks repairing guns for the military. i got alot of jumps on my log before i retired but not here. it's frickin' too cold up here. luckily this is only a 3 week job. i'll be back in kentucky for the holidays. not near as cold there. i might enjoy the softer PLF's though.

    Never made a snow jump always soldiered in warm climates. Sounds like a PLF done in deep snow might be kinda tough if your legs were stuck in like lawn darts.
