hooha for the 82 airbore
Those troops may very well be Jump School bound, but they are, at least as presented in that picture, far from being All Americans of the 82nd just yet.
They are wearing the black beanies of the straight leg world, although obviously the blue of the infantry. It appears to me to be basic trainees at Benning who possibly just graduated from Basic and AIT.
They still have an arduous ordeal in front of them in the form of Jump School and there will be plenty of Black Hats standing around waiting for them to arrive where less than 50% of them will actually survive and graduate to earn their wings.
Once they earn their silver wings, then it is off to Fort Bragg where, again, they will be Cherries and will have to endure their Cherry Jumps followed by a probationary period before they are actually accepted into their full time units.
