Soldiers from the Black Daggers, the U.S. Army Special Operations Command parachute demonstration team, visited Fort Jackson May 3 to help professionally develop 3rd Battalion, 13th Infantry Regiment Soldiers.

During the session, Sgt. 1st Class Allan Baros, Sgt. 1st Class Aaron Pigel, Sgt. 1st Class Jonathan Morales and Master Sgt. Travis Alfred answered Soldiers questions about the Special Forces Assessment and Selection course.

"The biggest thing is giving it all you got and never giving up" said Morales. "There aren't any mind games there … We're just watching to see what type of person you are."

The Black Daggers were in town for the South Carolina Air and Ground Expo at McEntire Joint National Guard Base where they performed a skydiving demonstration.

The Black Daggers is made up entirely of volunteers throughout the Army special operations community. They all have diverse backgrounds and different military specialties.
