Day 175 – Stars and Stripes

Posted in People by Dave on June 27, 2010

This event is just over the top. It began with an incredible beach entrance by Dana Bowman.  He was a member of the US Army Golden Knights Skydiving team Special Forces Soldier who lost both legs in a skydiving accident in 1994.  He is the first double amputee to qualify or re-qualify for active duty. It was truly amazing to watch him land in high winds.

Later, a friend of mine won a bid in the auction to jump out of the plane with him carrying the American Flag. That was funny.
