    RELEASE NUMBER: 140305-02
    DATE POSTED: MARCH 5, 2014

    North Carolina National Guard

    NEW LONDON, N.C. (USASOC News Service, March 5, 2014) - The humming of a Lockheed C-130 Hercules aircraft could be heard over the Stanly Airport in New London, N.C., releasing North Carolina National Guard soldiers from B Company, 1st Battalion, 20th Special Forces Group (Airborne).
    A chilly temperature of 40 degrees seems a bit brisk for most, but not for these "Quiet Professionals."

    The Soldiers conducted an airborne jump as a way to qualify and maintain their jump proficiency with their State Partnership Program (SPP) counterparts from the Moldovan Special Forces and to train on the use of the MC-4 parachute; used mostly by the U.S. Marines.
