Army Reserve paratroopers jump from British aircraft using British gear to earn their British parachute wings here, June 30, as part of a joint-training exercise called Operation Air Drop Warrior. The operation was an Army Reserve mission designed to foster training and camaraderie between the British "Paras" and Army Reserve paratroopers, and to support airborne operations commemorating the 65th D-Day Anniversary ceremonies, June 6. The U.S. Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command (Airborne) is the sole airborne command within the U.S. Army Reserve. "
