Fort Benning Paratrooper Training Postcards



I have attached some picture cards that my deceased "big brother", Ismael ( Mayo) Ramos ( Pvt., 517th PCRT, Company H, 2) had given my sister Lupe. She recently gave them to me to assemble a collection of his memorabilia.

I have transcribed his notes from the back of the cards that he wrote expressing his thoughts about his first jump. I can imagine similar thoughts were shared by his fellow troopers during the first jump experience.  I have given a title to each card that captured his impression.
I hope you all enjoy them. 
Note: I sent this to all his grand nephews and nephews (Viet Nam)
