HALO jumps are used to enter hostile territory undetected when threats to both Airmen and aircraft are expected.
"Any place. Any time. Anywhere. That's not a threat. It's a promise. That original motto took shape as part of the 1st Air Commando Group in World War II. The Chindits in Burma, Jedburghs in Europe, Jungle Jim in Vietnam, the hard lessons in Iran. We are small in number because we have to be. In our business, quality is always better than quantity. We will go wherever the mission demands. We will do whatever our country requires at a moment's notice."
