    just had my first night time C-130 ramp jump. i was right behind the jumpmaster, he said, GREEN LIGHT, GO!, FOLLOW ME!

    i said LEAD THE WAY and stepped off. :noes: counted 1 thousand, 2 thousand, 3 thousand. felt the shock from the canopy opening, then checked canopy and gained canopy control.

    man was it a rush :bowdown: . seeing the tampa city lights before the jump, waiting there, my knees were a little shaky. :noes:

    man, i love jumping!

    LOL. not this time.

    it was feet, the my left foot/leg slipped foward due to wet grass and fell backwards and hyperextended my left ankle. i was on the ground in pain for about 2 mins, then packed my stuff up and walked it off.

    I volunteered to go to JCSE, but you had to be SSgt or have a line number. Then I got my line number, called and they didn't need any SSgts. :greddy:

    I was reffering to the need. I understand you guys have all ranks. No, :wtc: 3C2s are on the chopping block with CJRs, so I have to secure one through alternate means, i.e. Recruiting. Submitted my package :)naughty:) and waiting for the CC to approve.

    So are you guys saying that Airborne guys in the Army are cocky? and that if we are in the AF we wouldn't know about that?
