The Special Operations Task Force - South parachute rigger's wall of fame, as seen here Dec. 20, 2010, is for units whose teams have had at least 1 million pounds of supplies pushed out during their deployment rotation. The wall represents the types of blades that cut skid plates and cushioning boards used in resupply bundles. The current SOTF-South rigging crew is on tap to deliver more than 3 million pounds during their rotation at Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan.
