Members from U.S. Special Operations Command headquarters, Special Operations Command Central and Joint Communications Support Element, representing all branches of the military, gathered Wednesday at the Hernando County Airport Industrial Park to work on static line and free fall parachute training. The Joint Ops units jumped about 1,500 feet and 13,000 feet, respectively, out of an MV-22 Osprey to stay current on technique and work on their skills.
