    Old joke, a really Old, Old, joke. Never saw a refusal to jump. During BAC the 34 foot tower is supposed to weed out those who may have a problem jumping from higher altitudes. Supposedly 34 feet is the no go if someone has a fear of heights. Normal training jump altitude is 1250 ft. During combat the jump altitude can be as low as 800-850 ft. At that height a reserve parachute is not needed, the Trooper will hit the ground before the reserve chute can open.

    Had an instructor who made the point that everybody jumps. Had a smart ass ask what would happen to him if he refused to jump. Instructor said, "Absolutely nothing, but the pilots love to jump too, and would be ecstatic to take your place." It took a few seconds to sink in for some, but the point was made.
