The Gold Demonstration team traveled to West Chester, Pennsylvania over the weekend to perform for the West Chester Rotorfest. SSG Jon Clevenger and SSG Mike Koch supported the local recruiters by attending a high school football game. There they presented one of the high school students with a plaque for demonstrating all of the core Army values. They also assisted in the coin toss as well as awarding coins to each of the team captains, wishing them the best of luck in their game.
Unfortunately, due to bad weather, Saturday was a bust although the team did go to the airfield to meet with the volunteers of the Civil Air Patrol. The team answered questions about the many opportunities the Army can offer and described how the parachute system works and about the mission of the Golden Knights.
Sunday morning the skies opened up with beautiful weather and the team performed two demonstration jumps. The first being a mass formation narrated by SGT Daniel Osorio, and the second being a full show narrated by SSG Mike Koch. The Gold Demonstration team presented a baton, which was flown in freefall, to Mrs. Sherron Trio, one of the major organizers of the airshow. Sadly, this was the last airshow for Gold Team, but we are looking forward to the many sporting events we get to support in the near future.
