4/25...America's Airborne Brigade in the Pacific doing work!...pic by Alejandro Peña

JOINT BASE ELEMDORF-RICHARDSON, Alaska (Jan. 9, 2018) - Paratroopers assigned to the 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division, U.S. Army Alaska, descend over Malemute drop zone during airborne training at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. The Soldiers of 4/25 belong to the only American airborne brigade in the Pacific and are trained to execute airborne maneuvers in extreme cold weather/high altitude environments in support of combat, training and disaster relief operations.
How do airborne troops do disaster relief?  I wonder if that's just copy and paste or if that's actually a role and function they truly perform.

If it isn't (and I suspect it isn't) then why the need to include it?  The 4/25 has a huge role as a contingency force throughout the region.  Maybe they should focus only on that?
