Hundreds of Soldiers trained with paramount equipment called the Airborne Caution Light ACL-500 series during this year’s Randy Oler Memorial Operation Toy Drop.

During the light module displays three different colors that corresponds with various commands: red, amber and green.
“The red tells jumpers not to exit, amber light means 30 seconds out and a green means for Soldiers to go,” said Chad Haver, founder of Combat Defense Systems (CDS). “This equipment is attached on or near the mock doors.”
