Madison, Wisconsin hosts an annual Rhythm & Booms event to celebrate our Independence Day! The Saturday closest to the 4th of July brings Wisconsin’s Capital together at Warner Park for Music, Food, Fireworks and Entertainment. That’s where Black Team Steps in!
Every year’s event brings the Golden Knights to the skies over Wisconsin. With a crystal clear view of the Capital building and “The Square,” Black Team performs 2 jumps from 12,500 feet, for the 250,000 citizens, gazing into the sky.

Gold Demonstration Team jumped into the Cedar Rapids Kernels stadium Friday afternoon despite tricky winds. Although two jumps were planned, only the first one went off; winds exceeded safety limits for the second jump.
A group of helpful kids helped pack the parachutes, and the recruiters were on hand to answer questions about Army opportunities to interested teens. (more…)
