Ready for the last training jump: made from 1,200 feet at the end of the war, so that the paratroopers
could continue to collect jump pay. Jesse Orosco was assigned to F Company after jump school
and was involved in all the European action. This photo was given to Jesse at the end of WWII by
Andy Senko, also from Fox Company.
