The Parachutist Badge is commonly referred to as “Jump Wings.” To receive the Parachutist Badge (jump wings), you must undergo jump training at Fort Benning in Columbus, Georgia. The Parachutist Badge is awarded to members of the Army, Air Force, Marine Corps and Navy. Often referred to as the “Snow Cone,” it is awarded to graduates of the Army Basic Airborne Course. Once a soldier receives the Jump Wings, he/she is a trained Army Parachutist, and is qualified to participate in airborne operations.
