U.S. Army paratroopers from Fort Bragg, N.C. load onto a C-130H Hercules aircraft from the 910th Airlift Wing, Youngstown, Ohio, on Green Ramp during Operation Toy Drop 2013, Pope Army Airfield, N.C. on Dec. 7. Operation Toy Drop is an annual U.S. Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command (Airborne) sponsored event. The main purpose is to gather toys donated by Fort Bragg Soldiers and distribute them to local children who might otherwise not receive a toy for the holidays. A large airborne operation is also part of Operation Toy Drop. Paratroopers will get a chance to train with a jumpmaster from one of nine countries participating this year. This allows them to earn foreign airborne or “jump” wings. (U.S. Air Force photo/Marvin Krause via Wikimedia Commons.)
