U.S. SOCOM Para-Commandos Parachute Team

The Para-Commandos will race towards earth at 120 mph before opening their iconic black and gold canopies during precision parachute demonstrations at Boca Chica Field Saturday and Sunday. In an extraordinary display of timing, accuracy, and precision maneuvering, the Para-Commandos will skydive from 12,500 feet over the beautiful Florida Coast.

The Para-Commandos are comprised of U.S. Special Operations Command personnel headquartered at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Fla. Most are combat veteran special operators from the US Army Special Forces or Rangers, the US Air Force’s Special Tactics Squadrons, US Navy SEALs, or US Marine Corps Special Operations Raiders.

United States Special Operations Command has approximately 70,000 Active Duty, Reserve and National Guard Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and DoD civilians assigned to the headquarters, its four components, and seven sub-unified commands. Every day, as many as 12,000 Special Operations Forces are deployed to more than 85 countries worldwide.
