The United States Special Operations Command (U.S. SOCOM) Parachute Team, called the Para-Commandos, is composed of volunteers from the United States Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and U.S. government civilians who are assigned to Special Operations Command. They are selected for the team after a rigorous training program. They participate with the U.S. SOCOM Parachute Team in addition to their regular duties, with training conducted during off duty time.

 

Formed in 1991, the USSOCOM Parachute Team represents the elite of the United States armed services, its Special Operations Forces (SOF). Team members are trained for a variety of combatant and humanitarian missions. One of the many techniques used for undetected infiltration into enemy zones is the dangerous and difficult military freefall (MFF) operation.

 

The USSOCOM is one of nine unified commands in the United States military’s combatant command structure. The bulk of the command’s 47,000 people are made up of Army Rangers and Special Forces (Green Berets); Navy Sea/Air/Land (SEAL) teams; Air Force combat controllers, pararescuemen and combat crew airmen; United States Marine Corps Forces Special Operators; and Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations forces.
