It seems to be an unglamorous job to be a parachute assembler but it is a duty that Airborne has taken upon himself to make sure that his teammates' parachutes are in perfect condition. As a medic, his first and foremost priority is the health and safety of his comrades. It just wouldn't do the mission any good if the first thing that happens is the parachute fails to open and somebody gets hurt or even much worse. He may seem like a fussy person but it all means that he's someone you can rely on. His skills as master rigger is second to none. When the tables turn against the Joes, he would brave the rain of gunfire to rescue you. That's how dedicated he is.
