Pretty damn nervous, I ship to Airborne in 3 days. The Drill Sargeants are saying there’s a fifty percent fail rate. I’m fine with my run (13:30) and with the idea of jumping, just wondering about the 41 and 52 club. Are they really looking to fail that many people?

The only person who is going to wash you out of jump school is you. The Airborne School is tasked with providing the military services with a certain number of basically qualified parachutists every year. Over the decades hundreds of thousands of service members of all sorts have completed the course. If all those folks were able to do it so can you. Get that in your head and keep it there and your failure rate will be zero.

The course is physically and mentally demanding but it’s nothing you can’t complete unless YOU don’t want to. Listen to instructions. Execute. Keep your feet and knees together.
