For John, BLUF: AIR BORNE! SERGEANT! Nothing to see here; just move along.
A nice article from Task and Purpose on a 5' 30" 1970s film on Airborne Training.
I remember Airborne School, down at Fort Benning, George.
I am bothered by high places, so I had to learn to look up to not tense up as I neared the ground.
