Summary
Cooper discusses the commonality amongst members of the United States Army Paratroopers. Such similarities include common experiences and even personalities, thus allowing members of this elite folk group to understand the stories of one another more fully. Focusing on jump stories, Cooper examines each of his informants as individuals, while bringing to light the many traditions of the U.S. Army
Biography type
contains biographical information
Biographical or historical data
Born in 1980, Cooper has been a self-proclaimed admirer of the military throughout his entire life. Having almost enlisted after graduating from high school, Cooper's parents convinced him to instead complete at least one year of college. Having consented, Cooper then spent his freshman year of college at Brigham Young University before serving a two year mission in England for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Upon returning to Utah, Cooper then pursed the ROTC at BYU before choosing to gain an alternative Army experience at basic training at Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri in 2004. The following year however, Cooper received, through the BYU AROTC, a slot to Airborne School at Ft. Benning, Georgia, a training which he thoroughly enjoyed.
