    It should say ",unless they've been to MFF." at the bottom.

    Always wondered why, since Freefall is one word, it was called MFF. Of course, called it the MF badge wouldn't have sounded any better.

    How old is that poster? Those chutes look like the old T-10s. I thought they were replaced twenty years ago!!!!

    I retired, and made my last military jump, in 96 and we were still using the T-10.
    I had never seen this until about two weeks ago.

    they have to put "military" on the front to make it sound cooler than skydiving.

    The T-10 is still the parachute of choice for conventional forces.

    Good point. And nowadays, every housewife who does a tandem is running around, after being strapped to some guy named "Moondoggie" calling themselves a skydiver.

    LOL yeah, so true. My buddy's girlfriend is one of those one-tandem skydivers and she talks about it all the time.

    My last 10 or 12 jumps were with the New T-11 parachute. The T-10 is still in service, but is being phased out. The T-11 is an awesome parachute. It is huge!!!

    Hey! I've got a buddy from back in my 82d Abn days who is stationed at Ft. Bliss with some new Infantry start up unit. His name is 1SG Chris Lewis. You should look him up if you get a chance. He's from Boston and is one of the best drinking buddies you'll ever find. He'll have you reliving your Abn days of old in no time flat. Tell him that Andy said "Hi" and that we miss him here in Columbia, South Carolina.

    I went to jump school in August 1990 and we had T10 Charlie's. We had to learn to jump **ithooks because there were not many airlift command airplanes available. This was during Desert Fox so all the 141's and 130's were headed to Saudi.

    Back to the original post, I'd buy one of those posters to put up in my office. My unit is infested with former Marines, most of whom are dirty, nasty legs!

    Looks like the T-10. My last jump was in 1983 and we were using the MC-1. Only jumped the T-10 once and that was in jump school.
