    Saw this earlier - interesting that they are not revealing the names of the soldiers involved - as that are a team and act like a team and all that- I'm sure the hero is the toast of his buddies- according to reports it was touch and go as the hero had to wrap his leg around the parachute of the other guy - I'd be scared shitless being either of them - and then he had to manuever the parachute to land in the sea a bit away from the intended landing -great stuff..
