Default Happy National Airborne day!!!!

August 16, 1940 marked the first official Army parachute jump.

"Where is the prince who can afford so to cover his country with troops for its defense, so that ten thousand men descending from the clouds might not, in many places, do an infinite deal of mischief before a force could be brought together to repel them?" —Benjamin Franklin, 1784

Just happens to be the day my Terminal Leave ends and I officially become a Civilian.

Haha, oh the irony!

But yeah, Happy Airborne day to all my Airborne Brothers, Past and Present!

I won't lie, I am late to the party, but my wings are my most prized accomplishment. (this coming from a guy that was afraid to fly)
