Earning His Wings

Another 509 Living Historian has earned his wings. Stephane recently endured the training and 5 jumps in January of 2013 with the WWII Airborne Demonstration Team (ADT) to earn his jump wings. The training involves rigorous exercises and culminates with jumping from a WWII era C-47.

Congratulations Stephane, ALL THE WAY!

    I cannot truly express how it makes me feel when you make the decision to get jump qualified. I can say that it is personally gratifying for me to see you all join the brotherhood knowing that i would feel very confident in a real world situation with any of my new brothers. Gen. James Gavin said,”show me a man that will jump and i will show you a man that will fight.” Never were truer words spoken.
