U.S. Army Green Berets and Latvian Special Forces Conduct HALO Jump

1 min read

U.S. Army and Latvian Special Forces practiced high-altitude, low-opening (HALO) jumps in Latvia on 18 June 2020. The U.S. Special Forces soldiers jumped from a Latvian Air Force Antonov AN-2 transport plane with their counterparts from the Latvian Special Operations Unit. U.S. Special Forces frequently practice airborne operations alongside their Latvian allies. During a HALO jump, operators free fall from high altitudes (upward from 10,000 feet) before opening their parachutes close to the ground. This technique, pioneered by Green Berets, allows for rapid, discreet insertion of special operations forces.
