UF PRO: Professionals’ Insight – Part II and III

With this video series from UF PRO, we’ve been following an elite team of soldiers deployed behind enemy lines performing a hostage rescue operation…

In Part I the team conducted a clandestine HALO insertion into enemy territory.  In Parts II and III we see their tactical procedures and the gear used when operating behind the lines,  moving into a covert OP, conducting the assault  and rescue, and then extracting to the EXFIL location.

PART 2: SETTING UP A COVERT OBSERVATION POST

In commemoration of the airborne forces who led the way in the invasion of Normandy seventy-one years ago, The Liberty Jump Team performed an airdrop of paratroops from a WWII-era C-47 aircraft at Amfreville.

Formed in 2006, The Liberty Jump Team is comprised of active duty & retired ABN as well as families of Vets and those seeking to keep the flame alive.  www.libertyjumpteam.org
