Paratroopers assigned to 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, and the British 16th Air Assault Brigade conduct airborne training at the Advanced Airborne School on Fort Bragg, N.C., March 16, 2015. The 2nd BCT will lead a Combined Joint Operational Access Exercise with the British battle group in April. The exercise represents a major milestone in the Division’s interoperability program to ultimately create the capability to seamlessly integrate a U.K. brigade into the Division, allowing the two units to operate quickly and effectively in the event they were to deploy as a part of a coalition crisis response force. More than 850 British Soldiers began arriving at Fort Bragg on March 9 to prepare for the exercise. (82nd Airborne Division photo by Staff Sgt. Jason Hull/Released)
