Corey was at Ft. Benning for 3 weeks for Airborne training. It is located about 100 miles from me so I have been busy driving up to see my war hero on the weekends. He absolutely hated the training and the jumping, but it's over and he only has to jump once a quarter. His last jump was rough. He hit the plane, spun around, didn't get his parachute open until 400 ft and then had a hard landing. No broken bones or serious injuries though. I would LOVE to attend this training but they typically don't send pilots...challenge accepted :)

Training field

The Silverwings dive team jumped in for the graduation

The grass was slippery

This was one of the best graduations I've attended

4 platoons double timing in

Corey was in the back row. I had to find him when it was time to pin him.

We spent a day at the National Infantry Museum. It is beautiful!

Waiting to do their 3rd jump

A new frame for his office :)

My husband is airborne; it's so scary yet I can imagine the adrenaline behind it. Congrats to Corey.
