A U.S. paratrooper from the 82nd Airborne’s 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment – the storied "Devils in Baggy Pants" (so-called in a German officer’s diary entry at Anzio) -- jumps across an irrigation ditch on the edge of a village in Afghanistan's Ghazni province last week. After-action report says he made it.
