Jumpmaster earns senior-rated star
Members of the 820th Base Defense Group pose with Tech. Sgt. Joe Ostrum, 820th Combat Operations Squadron personal parachute program manager, front, third from the left, after he earned his senior-rated parachutist badge during a static-line jump, Oct. 3, 2017, at the Lee Fulp drop zone in Tifton, Ga. During a static-line jump, the jumper is attached to the aircraft via the ‘static-line’, which automatically deploys the jumpers’ parachute after they’ve exited the aircraft.
