Cadets received their foreign jump wings on the parade field at BRIPAK -- La Brigada Paracaidist. It is located near Madrid, and the English classes the Cadets helped teach were located on the base. Foreign jump wings are a prized possession in the U.S. Army airborne community. For an Army ROTC Cadet to earn foreign jump wings before he or she is even commissioned is rare.
