It was a great day for a jump, and a very humbling experience.


Story by Sgt. David Bolton, 133rd Mobile Public Affairs Detachment


CAMP ATTERBURY, In. — In an isolated field in the middle of Indiana, a group of Kentucky National Guard paratroopers gathered to pay homage to their brothers-in-arms who paid the ultimate sacrifice during World War II. Soldiers from Kentucky’s 20th Special Forces Group met at Camp Atterbury June 6, to take part in parachute jumps from UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of D-Day.

It was suppose to be a quit memorial jump, but somehow when we were in the planning phase the word got out via Camp Atterbury personnel.
