This week, the US Army Parachute Team promoted three of their own to the rank of Sergeant First Class. SFC Drew Starr, SFC Scott Janise and SFC Laura Dickmeyer, along with previously promoted SFC Dannielle Woosley, SFC Josh Coleman and SFC Justin Blewitt, are all members of the Golden Knights Competition Team and have contributed to putting the “Gold” in Golden Knight multiple times over the past three years.
In 2011 alone, the Golden Knights 8-way (GK8) team brought home Gold from the World Parachuting Cup in Germany and the US National Parachuting Championships in Arizona. The Golden Knights Female 4-Way team (GKF4) brought home Gold from the 5th Military World Games in Brazil. Members of both GK8 and GKF4 came together at the US Nationals in Arizona to secure Gold medals in both the 10-way and the 16-way events. With this year’s busy competition schedule, there will be more Gold to come. Congratulations to the newly minted Sergeants First Class. Now get back to training! Blue Skies!
