First Lt. David Pearson with the 1st Squadron, 40th Cavalry Regiment, 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division, takes a knee as he waits for another paratrooper to secure his equipment after successfully exiting a C-130 Hercules Alaska Air National Guard aircraft, Dec. 12, 2013, at the Malemute Drop Zone at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska. Pearson and his unit exited the aircraft from the tailgate with a full arctic combat load, demonstrating their unique ability to rapidly deploy troops into arctic environments in response to a variety of contingencies.
