JBER's Airborne Contribution
JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, Alaska —
The command to “sound off for equipment check” resonates through the immense interior of a C-17 Globemaster III aircraft. The call of “One, OK!” finalizes the equipment check, then 170-pound Soldiers carrying 150 pounds of gear each shuffle like zombies toward the open door of the massive cargo aircraft cruising at 1,000 feet. The light changes to green and they stumble towards the door with a hand covering their reserve chute. Recalling their training, they take a giant leap into the unknown.
That sensation is something familiar to many at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.
