Monday morning, two members of Golden Knights Female 4-Way (GKF4) Team visited Don Steed Elementary to meet and show 100 kindergarteners exactly what they do every day. SFC Angela Nichols and SFC Laura Dickmeyer wowed their intense audience with Golden Knight videos and stories of their most exciting jumps during their careers as Golden Knights.
The students were extremely excited to be able to see and touch all of the equipment and parachute that the female Soldiers use to do their job. The team members finished up by answering several questions from the inquisitive kindergarteners and passed out Golden Knight stickers, line art books and calendars.
All of the ladies on the GKF4 came to the Golden Knights Assessment and Selection Program to see if they had what it takes to be a Golden Knight. After successfully graduating from the program they were assigned to a demonstration team to traverse across the country as Ambassadors of Goodwill.
Several years later they tried out for the team’s historical first all-women’s competition team and made it. They now are multi world and national champions representing the U.S. Army and United States.
