Short Documentary I made while in Rajasthan, India about Operation Desert Lark a training event during Yudh Abhyas, and annual exercise between the U.S. and Indian Armies. Much of the focus on this story was about the opportunity some U.S. soldiers had to work specifically with Indian Special Forces Paratroopers. It was a unique opportunity because typically Special Forces from both countries are participating in the exchange but the U.S. Special Forces were unable to attend this year so some high-speed soldiers were able to sit in. The units that took part were from U.S. Army Pacific (USARPAC) including the A troop 2-14 Cav 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division from Schofield Barracks, Hawaii and the 6th Engineer Battalion (Airborne), 2nd Engineer Brigade out of Ft. Richardson, Alaska, along with Indian conventional and Special Forces units.
