But yeah the good 'ole Puking Seagulls were no longer considered a Airborne unit after Vietnam if I'm not mistaken.

Also I did 6 1/2 years in Bragg, we had plenty of NAP there. We had a prior service guy in my Company who was there for 4 years and never went to Jump School but you can bet he was on every chute shakeout haha.

I know FET's (Female Engagement Teams) were just starting to become a pretty big thing once I started ETS'n, but like previously mentioned I think they are just attachments, although I think they still have to go through a variation of SERE.
