FORT POLK, La. -- A Soldier with Headquarters and Headquarters Detachment, 1st Battalion (Airborne), 509th Infantry Regiment, jumps into the chilly waters of Alligator Lake May 20 -- and makes a little history. It was the first time the Lakota helicopter was used to drop personnel into a lake. The exercise was also a send-off for the Soldiers before they take block leave for the summer. These three photos show the jump in progression.
