It is required for all students and new members to get a physical before attending training or jump activities with the team and present a medical certificate.
It can not be emphasized enough the need for jump school students to be in good shape when they come to school. There is no rank structure on the team-team members may only wear rank and badges that were earned in the US or Foreign Military Service.
The following paper work is needed from students:
*Doctors Release - you will need a medical statement from your physician clearing you for the training and jump activities.
*Certificate from Jump School - for prior jumpers, bring proof of jump school completion. This can be a DD-214, copy of the graduation certificate, ect.
*Other Certificates - for prior service jumpers, bring any documentation showing completion of JM school, Pathfinder School, ect
*DD-214 - it is a good idea for prior service students to have copies of their DD-214 because it contains much of the needed prior service information.
*Parachute Jump Log - for prior jumpers, you need to bring your jump log.
