Black Team

The Black Demonstration Team consists of ten highly motivated, highly skilled Soldiers from a variety of jobs in the Army. Black Team’s motto, “Blue Skies, Black Death,” finds its roots in the Airborne units of World War II, when American paratroopers descended by the thousands on German troops, truly raining down “Death from Above.” Although Black Team’s demonstrators don’t literally rain down death from above, they do execute their mission with the same precision and dedication as the paratroops of old.
