The World's Most Interesting Paratrooper-

Once when asked to produce a box-o-grid squares, he did.

During the JMPI, the Jump Master squats and holds.

At a tribal meeting in Afghanistan, he told a knock-knock joke so convincingly that tribal elders got up and actually answered the door.

He is the World's Most Interesting Paratrooper.

Thumbs up

Great pic! One of our SOT-As, who is almost as old as that guy, made his 5th jump at Benning today too. Needless to say, that photo was sent throughout the detachment!

He has the keys to the DZ in his pocket.

He can turn off the range fan at will.

He had the courtesy to thank the SF ODA that set up his "mustard stain" DZ.

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.

A few pulled from the internet (nothing on my part creative here) Changed a few to make them fit.

Even his enemy’s list him as there emergency contact.

His organ donor card also includes his beard” ~Allen Chavez

For his DLPT he speaks fluent French, in Russian.

His beard alone has experienced more combat than a lesser mans body

His enemy's reload his weapon for him, just for the honor of receiving his fire.
