WINTER STORM 2015

OPERATION WINTER STORM, the traditional winter military static line parachute jump exercise was a great success. EPA members, coming from 6 different countries, Italy, United Kingdom, USA, Denmark, Greece and Serbia, had the great opportunity to attend a true international parachute jump exercise & wings exchange event with JM teams from several nations. Ground training, non-tactical and tactical parachute static line descents with the paratrooper's individual equipment and weapon (dummy gun), with current operational military round canopy parachute systems was performed. This was not an easy parachute jump exercise. It was long, cold, difficult and both mentally and physically challenging for all! The life of a Paratrooper is harsh and demanding. This exercise was equally so. Our members have succesfully completed a grueling five day exercise and was awarded with different foreign airborne wings.
