The students were extremely receptive to what the Team had to say, and had some great questions for the Team to answer, both about skydiving, and the Army. The presentation included an exciting video, and one of the students getting the opportunity to gear up in the Team’s actual equipment, to see how it feels to get ready for a jump.

Today, the Gold Demonstration Team took advantage of some rare time at home to visit a couple local high schools in the Raleigh, NC area. The Team is planning a jump into the Duke v Army game on Saturday, and as they had to do a site survey at the stadium, they made it into an all day event, working with local recruiters and speaking with over 400 students from Garner and Jordan High Schools.
