      Smokejumpers. Smokejumping is one of the most challenging firefighting disciplines. Specially trained to parachute into remote areas to fight raging fires, smokejumpers are in a class all their own.

Beginning in the spring of , the CIA sent two agents to the smokejumper base at Nine Mile, Mont., to be trained to parachute into mountainous and isolated terrain. The agents apparently reported back that there was a cadre of men already trained and willing to take on whatever the Agency wanted done.
