Hundreds of soldiers take a huge leap


by Whitney LB Miller

ANCHORAGE - Tuesday hundreds of paratroopers leaping from a military plane as they train to enter combat zones over seas.

Every three months they gear up and put into action their airborne training to simulate a drop into battle zones.

However, soldiers are not the only thing paratroopers train to fall out of a plane.

Very badly written article. We Paratroopers do NOT fall out of a plane, we jump from aircraft.
