A member of the 820th Base Defense Group (BDG) adds an MC-6 parachute into formation for accountability, Oct. 3, 2017, at the Lee Fulp drop zone in Tifton, Ga. The 820th Combat Operations Squadron’s four-person shop of parachute riggers are responsible for ensuring every 820th BDG parachute is serviceable, while also ensuring ground safety at the drop zone. The team has packed and inspected more than 490 parachutes in 2017. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Daniel Snider)
