HALO takes an in-depth look at an elite unit of soldiers training to become “High Altitude, Low Opening” jumpers. As part of the nation’s effort to combat terrorism, HALO soldiers train to jump at altitudes as high as 35,000 feet, freefalling to about 2,000 feet before opening their chutes. HALO also explores the impact of such rigorous training on the
families that support these unusual soldiers.
