A paratrooper died in the United States during an exercise

28

A U.S. Army paratrooper was killed during a training event in Fort Stewart, Georgia. The incident took place on Wednesday at about seven o'clock in the evening.


This was reported to the American edition of Military.com by Lieutenant Colonel Mike Burns, a representative of the 82nd Airborne Division from Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

The paratrooper, whose name has not yet been reported, was assigned to the battle group of the 82nd division, 3rd brigade. Lieutenant Colonel Burns does not yet have complete information about the circumstances of the disaster and the degree of preparedness of the serviceman. The incident is currently being investigated.

Earlier in July of this year, six American paratroopers from Fort Bragg were injured during a training session near the German city of Grafenwehr. Then they went off course during the jump. Three of them then had to be hospitalized.

Fort Bragg is considered one of the main garrisons of the United States Army (Ground Forces). The main body of command and control and about 70 percent of the US Army Special Forces are located here, as well as the command of the United States Army Reserve Forces. The United States Air Force Special Forces units are stationed at the nearby Pope airfield.

    And where people don't die? And not only in the army? Everywhere, in any specialty. And in any country. There is such a concept as an accident. But its cause. And the consequence that led to the tragedy. Here are smart heads to make an analysis and it never happened again.

        To condole, or not to condole on this matter of everyone, but also to gloat over the death of a soldier during the exercise certainly not worth it, in whatever army he served. No one is immune from this. hi

    More die during car accidents.
    But Alexei Navalny woke up and, together with his wife, swore at the doctors and the Omsk ambulance doctors, who saved him after the MI-6 multi-walk, after poisoning him - "Lyosha 2%".

      Yes, I feel more sorry for this foreign American paratrooper than for this "our" Lesha

      What did mi 6 confess? Or Stirlitz leaked everything to the network?

    My friend and Lebed served. Somehow they jumped with the whole division on exercises, everyone's parachute opened, but Lebed didn’t.

      Experienced people sometimes get away with "letting go", let's say politically correct, either too confident in themselves, or in a hurry, because the board is coming soon. The swan might not be properly checked at all. I myself have laid it down more than once, just disgustingly, literally kicking the dome into the camera, skipping the verification steps, etc., but everything was smooth. True, this is me about the Crossbow and Styer, the main thing is that the lines are not confused, and it will open. On D-6-10 you shouldn't do that.

    The leader, by the way, wrote very correctly:

    If the movements were as in the photo, then the convergence is most likely banal. For many years I have not jumped on a round parachute, and God forbid, I am simply afraid of him, especially after jumping from the IL at night - sheer game. I immediately went to the right as best I could, but some of my comrades were unlucky - one of them flew into the lines twice in one jump. It's good that everyone went their separate ways, because they were experienced guys. It is a pity that it is unrealistic to "transplant" the Airborne Forces and other jumping en masse on the A-2, at least, I am not talking about the A-1 at all. It's like driving a broken tractor versus a normal modern car by comparison.

    I hope there will not be a single negative comment here. I never love Americans, but I treat their military with respect, like a professional to a professional. Sorry for the guy. I saw live how they work, and talked several times - let's say, there is a lot to learn, especially in terms of coordination and management. Yes, individual training can limp in some places, but in general they work cool, especially impressive is the speed of information exchange, and, as a result, decision-making. We are still far from this, I must admit, although everything has become much better in recent years.

      And I don't give a damn about them, I'm not at all sorry. They contributed to the collapse of the country in which I was born, they bombed the Serbs and gave refuge to Chechen terrorists, surrounded the Russian bases from all sides, the more they die, the better. No emotion, simple math and logic

        On the whole, you are absolutely right, but I wrote not about global issues and processes, but about the "person-to-person" level. Who are they? Sergeant Johnson? Corporal Jackson? The guy who died was just doing his job and getting paid for it. Believe me, 95% of our officers and contractors live the same way. Someone serves by vocation, because he is a warrior by nature, someone from a military dynasty, someone from despair (he can’t do anything else). I admit that there are those who just love to shoot at people. But that's their job. Do you think our military doesn't do ugly things? How they do it. I generally keep quiet about PMCs. Whatever one may say, each country follows its own national interests, and fighters, individual people are just a cog in this machine.

          In VO, such thoughts on humanizing the enemy (even if only potential) are condemned by the majority. A purely "Hottentot ethic" is at work here: if a Zulu stole a horse from me, he did a bad thing; if I stole a horse from a Zulu, I did a good thing.

            I've been reading this site for the ninth year. Well, why is the potential one - a very real geopolitical enemy, for about a century and a half. Most people divide the world into black and white, you are right. Only it is much more complicated. If we talk in terms of my craft and the agenda of this discussion, I personally saw and did very dumb things, for which I am ashamed both in front of myself and for the country. How can I deny and assert that we are for all the good and they are for all the bad? Self-deception? Each country is for itself, because there are no allies except the army and the navy. And they, too, have only vassals and hangers-on.

              It is precisely people who complicate it. The problem is that even if you refuse to divide the world into black and white, someone else on the other side of the border can easily do it for you. And he will.

              I don’t know, and I’m not going to ask what you saw or what you did. If you understood and accepted your past properly, built it into your system of moral values, then you do not need self-deception, and it will be impossible for others to deceive you on this topic.

                I won’t answer, you understand. In a nutshell, I just know how everything really happens, not from stories and movies. Thank you for your sober view of things).
