A Stick of Jumpers goes by in a sort of undignified waddle rather than a march. Each with a parachute on his back, a smaller reserve chute at his stomach, and a ruck sack bumping against his knees as he walks along, it was not a graceful walk.

The back doors of the C-141 are swung open ready for a load of Paratroopers. The guy on the left with the red hat is one of the Riggers. It was their job to pack all the parachutes, and deliver ready chutes to troops going out on a jump.
