The following set of slides (and many more not shown) were picked up at a local flea market along with 3000 more from the same photographer. In this case, he was invited down to view a series of military exercises at Pope Air Force Base in Fort Bragg, NC. The activities and joint demonstrations by the United States Readiness Command (USREDCOM), Brass Key II at Fort Bragg in North Carolina were a series of military exercises to show the readiness of US airborne and Special Forces troops. A great set of shots all taken in 1974.

Fort Bragg – love it! Nice parachute photo, too.
My husband was flying one of the C-130s in this exercise. I was in the stands along with many other wives watching this spectacular show. I will never forget it.
Wow – very cool! I have many more shots, including photos of the crowd. Any interest in seeing them?
