North Carolina’s skies were filled with 4,000 paratroopers across the world during the 19th annual Randy Oler Memorial Operation Toy Drop. Every year, the Fort Bragg, N.C. community begins celebrating the holiday early by inviting their coalition partners to participate in the world’s largest annual multinational airborne exercise and give toys to children in need. U.S. Air Force and Army units worked alongside Canadian, Dutch, Botswanan, Czech, German, Italian, Polish, and Singaporean armed forces to strenghten coalition partnerships and hone airborne capabilities. Paratroopers participated in the event as 120 jumpmasters helped jumpers familiarize themselves with a multitude of aircraft and standardizations, which helped units to forge bonds to lessen cultural barriers.
