Happy Airborne Day. August 16th

I actually remembered it this year.**Happy Airborne Day to my fellow Paratroopers, past and present.
Remember your 5 points of performance and your 3 rules of the air.

1- proper exit
2- check canopy and gain canopy control
3- look out for fellow jumpers
4- Slip/ turn into the wind and prep to land
5- Land!

I'm drawing a blank on the 3 rules. I'm 99% certain one of them is "lower jumper has the right of way".

Airborne!!!!!

Ahhh..brings back memories. My last jump resulted in a double malfunction.

If it wasn't for all the training..I'd be toast.

I have a son who was Airborne. Served in the USA, Europe, Asia and Africa. Hats off to all Airbone on their day.

Also have a son who is a Naval Officer getting ready for his 3rd trip to the Persian Gulf.

Proud of them both.
