Master Sgt. David S. Brunson with the U. S Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command (Airborne) task force, uses a British swing landing trainer which simulates being under the canopy of a low level parachute which British paratroopers use during their airborne operations. Brunson is one of over 90 USACAPOC(A) paratroopers from units across the U.S. who are participating in Operation Air Drop Normandy. The operation will commemorate the 66th Anniversary of D-day Allied Invasion by visiting key sites, participating in memorial ceremonies and conducting airborne operations on June 5, 2010 on the same drop zones their paratrooper brethren jumped on 66 years ago.
