101st Airborne Division,
Charlie Company,1st Battalion,
502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment

The paratrooper uniform is very distinct. It was designed with bellow pockets so troops could carry extra items on their person and were held closed by heavy snaps so the items carried could not be torn away when exiting the plane. After much wear and tear on the uniform in the field during training, the uniform was "Modified" by the unit riggers, "Reinforcing" the elbows, knees, and the bottoms of the pockets.
