A smiling Maj. Gen. David N. Blackledge, commanding general of U.S. Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command (Airborne), walks off Sicily Drop Zone carrying his parachute during the 12th Annual Randy Oler Memorial Operation Toy Drop, Dec. 6, at Fort Bragg. USACAPOC(A) hosts the airborne operation with the support of Fort Bragg's XVIII Airborne Corps and Pope Air Force Base's 43rd Airlift Wing. Over 900 Soldiers donated a toy for a lottery ticket for the chance to jump under an international jumpmaster in order to earn either German or Canadian jump wings this year. The operation gives Soldiers and Airmen the opportunity to help local families in need over the holidays while boosting morale and incorporating valuable training. Since its inception, Operation Toy Drop has collected and distributed more than 30,000 toys for families of Soldiers as well as orphanages in the local community.
