So can you name everything he’s doing without reading the comments on YouTube?

  1. Being tall and a big boy I was always last in the stick so I only got a glimpse of the jump master as I pushed the second to last guy out in front of me. ;)

  2. Apparently pre jump used to be a lot more interesting lol

  3. Funny thing is, I'm dutch but most signals are exactly the same as we use.

  4. That one's been around for a few years, but still a classic — especially the nap time.

  5. Read his actions and movement like a book! Only problem was, he apparently took a shortcut to the equipment turn-in point. All of Bragg's drop zones are alot longer, and the Jumpmaster usually dumped us Navy types out low-level at the far end. Regards, AGCM, (SW/ PJ), the Navy's first jumping weather-guesser

  6. This is not the Special Forces that I was in. This is the most stupid bunch of garbage that I have seen in articles or comments on the military. I really can't believe any person that spent over five years in service, would be a participant in this junk.

  7. Yes this has been around for a while. Still pretty good.

  8. You sound like the crabbiest of armchair warriors now that your retired Command Sergeant Major. Please enlighten us as to what branch of the military and special forces unit you served in that outlawed such shenanigans.

    Seen this for years (still awesome) but this if the first time I've seen it with "SF" in the title… I was always under the impression it was 82nd boys.

    Favorite part is sleeping on stand to, who hasn't felt the z monster hit them in the prone

    Besides the Airborne Troops, Air Force Airdrop Loadmasters seen that dance many times prior to the green light. I enjoyed it and it brought back many memories as well as made me laugh.

  11. That was the 82nd, sometime around 2005, if I recall.

    And CSM, I dont know what group you were in that didnt see this "most stupid bunch of garbage". When I was in group, we were able to accomplish the mission and still have a laugh on the way.

  12. Hey Fred your knickers are to tight. A little fun makes the day a lot more fun. 18 years in SF and 32 years active. The guy had it down pat and funny as ****.

  13. Pure genius!

    I loved it! Great PLF. Wish I was that limber again:-)

  15. Good to know that the Old Core Values of "Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash" are alive and well in our senior NCOs!

    God forbid that we attempt to inject such horrific attributes into the morale of the American Soldier!

    Sure, it's cute, but one mustn't forget the NINE jump commands. The "jumpmaster" in this demonstration forgot "Check Static Lines". I sure hope everyone hooked up properly with no static line entanglements…

  17. I truly enjoyed that. I left the 82nd after Desert Storm and this brought back some good memories. I'm glad soldiers can make light of a very serious and sometimes deadly profession.

  18. 20 minutes; 10 minutes; get ready; outboard personnel stand up; inboard personnel stand up; hook up; check static line; check equipment; sound off with equipment check; 1 minute; 30 seconds; green light-Go!

  19. Anyone actually know the original source of this dance? Looks as if some PA types got even better video.


  20. I just saw the dance for the first time and thought it was funny. I spent 20 years on Jump status with the 82nd and in a Special Operations Bn. As to CSM Fred you are entitled to your oppinon but as a retired 1SG I just want you to remember diamonds are trump and I thought it was great to poke a little fun.
