US Navy SEALs Jump from C-130 Hercules

I have never wanted to jump out of a plane. Perhaps I should. Maybe it should be on my “bucket list.” But truth be told I’ve had enough close calls in life. I don’t want to seek them out.
Fortunately, we have men like those of the US Navy SEALs who like to jump out of airplanes.

SEALs are maritime special operations forces operating from sea, air, and land. Students are trained to operate from fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, Navy surface ships, submarines, and combatant-craft. (US Navy Photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Kyle D.
