Photo Of The Day and we take a look at some of the heroes that make this endless series of articles go on – the photographers. Above you see U.S. Army Spc. Donovon Lynch, a Mass Communications Specialist assigned to the Viper Team at the Joint Multinational Readiness Center. He’s taking photos of paratroopers during Exercise Saber Junction 22 in Hohenfels, Germany, on September 7, 2022.
Saber Junction 22 is a combat training rotation designed to assess the readiness of the 173rd IBCT (ABN) in executing operations in a joint, combined environment and to promote interoperability with participating allied and partner nations.
Below: A U.S. Army paratrooper, assigned to the 173rd Infantry Brigade Combat Team- Airborne (173rd IBCT ABN), walks to the rally point after a Joint Forceable Entry mission into the Hohenfels Training Area. In moments like this, carrying a Machine Gun with all the ammunition isn’t as cool as in Rambo.
Did you ever jump out of an aircraft and parachute down? How was it? Would you do it again?
