    Who does the rigging for these airdrops? AF or Army? Just curious, back in the old days Army QM riggers made up the bundles along with attaching the chutes, AF then delivered on target. My son video taped an air resupply to his platoon at COP Baylough that was very funny because of the excitement of the troops and their comments. Especially true when the last 5 bundles streamered-in and exploded like bombs. It was a very long drop with 25 bundles, well 20 that made good landings. I have it on Facebook but don't know how to get it to military.com. The original is no longer available because it was on a corrupted drive.
