173rd Airborne Brigade Paratroopers conducted a Joint Force Entry (JFE) exercise....pics by Sgt. Devon Bistarkey
I watched a vid of this, this weekend and man! The 173rd either staged a great photo op or they're getting serious about a mechanized airborne force. NOTE that they rolled off the C-17 full manned....that's something new. Usually they land and then have to load up for combat ops. If they're now able to roll off planes and drive into combat then this is something new for our airborne community.
The Army is getting serious.
If they continue on this path then they will be able to deploy a mobile, armored infantry force behind enemy lines. The dream is becoming reality.
