To all military veterans and to those who made the ultimate sacrifice, their lives in defense of our country.

We salute you and are grateful for your service!

These men many times stood before great evil and gave tremendous effort for us.

God Bless You!
Pappy

This past weekend (July 6, 2019), I jumped (twice) at the Freedom Fest Airshow in Goshen, IN. Supposedly, it is the largest one-day airshow in the US, drawing a crowd of close to 30,000 people, many of whom were Amish.

The best part was this was the first time I got to jump from a helicopter. It hovered at 5,300' AGL for the first jump (we jumped flags) and at 8,200' for the 2nd jump (no flags, jumped personal gear).

Here I am with the Indiana State Flag

I'm in the middle in this picture. Myself and the guy in front of me landing at the same time (totally unplanned):

Three of the five jumpers that day are military vets (enlisted). The US flag flown by former Army Reserve, IN flag (myself) is former Navy, and the magenta colored parachute flown by former Air Force.
