FORT HOOD — The jump is over in a matter of seconds, but the preparation can take all day. Sometimes, even after all the hard work, the jump never happens.

Soldiers of Charlie Company, 2nd Squadron, 38th Cavalry Regiment, 504th Battlefield Surveillance Brigade, Fort Hood’s only airborne unit, spent Tuesday preparing for a night jump and follow-on mission, that — thanks to the weather — instead became a chance to practice putting on gear while in the air on a C-130. No jump and no follow-on mission upon hitting the ground.
