Operation Toy Drop is an annual Airborne jump at Fort Bragg in its 11th year hosted by the Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command (Airborne), and supported by Fort Bragg's XVIII Airborne Corps and the Air Force Reserve Command's 440th Airlift Wing at Pope AFB that gives Soldiers and Airmen the opportunity to help local families in need over the holidays while boosting morale and incorporating valuable training.
