The Jump Tower

The Jump Tower at Fort Bragg's Airborne School provides Cadets the opportunity to face their fears and to learn to trust in their equipment as well as the training of the resident Jumpmasters.

“ Becoming an officer in the United States Army is a challenge like no other. When a cadet becomes a lieutenant he or she will also gain the responsibility that comes with being a leader in the Army. In today’s world, Soldier’s lives depend on the knowledge and decisions of their leaders. As you complete more and more training, you’ll notice a change in the way you carry yourself and the choices you make. ROTC can help you become more responsible and independent even if becoming an officer isn’t for you. It will challenge your self-determination to become a better person. I still have a year of training until I become a lieutenant, but I am ready for the challenge and you will be too if you decide to take it. ”
