One of my friends graduated from airborne school

Post by JediMindTricks » Wed Sep 11, 2019 9:29 am

This post is not meant to offend anyone, I am not trying to start any kind of flame war, I'm just proud of a friend, and of my homeland.

One of my friends, who has served in the war zone in eastern Ukraine for 40 months, with varying volunteer battalions, first Donbas-1 then Praviy Sektor. Enrolled in one of the newest Airborne troops schools in Ukraine. He is 26 years old.

He was really impressed with the new tactics, new gear, new weapons, and the overall training that he got to experience. He had opportunity to train with US airborne and SOF teams, and a little bit with Canadian and Estonian airborne.

The Ukrainian armed forces has come such a long way since the beginning of the war. Sasha says morale is really high.

He's in a couple of these photos, but I'm not going to point him out.

Man, that's bad ass. Congrats to your buddy and I hope for a peaceful end to hostilities out there.
All the best, Gents.

That is pretty damn cool.

These are photos hot from an email. I asked for permission to share some, these are approved for sharing.
These are from the Praviy Sektor volunteer unit that Sasha served with. They are friends for life.
These last 8 months or so have been very difficult, attacks are mounting up, losses are heavy, wounded are heavy. (some of the big group photos look older, but others are within the last 5-6 months. Thats what I'm told. Enjoy.
Please, I mean no offense. No flame war please.

This is from the 1st Praviy Sektor Assault Squad.
