Completes Paratroop Training
Ft. Benning, Ga., Dec. 2 -- Pvt. Edward F. Monet, Burnham St., Lowell, has won the right to wear "Wings and Boots" of the United States Army Paratroops. He has completed four weeks of jump training during which time he made five jumps, the last a tactical jump at night involving a combat problem on landing.
Jumping at the parachute school has been steadily developed to a recognized war science. American paratroopers have been recognized throughout the world for their meritorious actions against the enemy.
In addition to producing jumpers, parachute specialist training is given to qualified men in communications, demolitions, riggers and parachute maintenance, vital skills for airborne troops.
