Paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne Division's 1st Brigade Combat Team arrived home from a deployment to Afghanistan.
The 82nd Airborne Division recently tested a new system for airdropping battlefield necessities such as extra munitions.
The change will allow paratroopers to keep pay when circumstances out of their control prevent them from performing jumps.
More than 100 soldiers celebrated with their families Monday as they returned to Fort Bragg from Operation Inherent Resolve.
Two 82nd Airborne Division paratroopers were killed in Afghanistan Wednesday, an Army statement said.
Officials say 12 U.S. paratroopers have been hospitalized after they sustained injuries during a parachute jump in Romania.
The sheer power of multiple units to organize and deploy on short notice should reassure allies and deter potential enemies.
The U.S. Army announced Thursday it will deploy 1,700 soldiers from the 82nd Airborne Division to advise and assist in Iraq.
Paratroopers shuffled to the doors bathed in a red light, and one-by-one they stepped out into the dark.
