It was May 5th and we had to jump. None of us thought this jump would go well. We’re airborne, we fly around, and we start getting jump commands. They open the door. It’s so foggy, fog was coming in the aircraft. So we’re thinking they’ll scratch this. Then we hear “Green Light Go!”
We exit. Can’t see the other jumpers in the air, can’t see the ground. At the end, one of my home girls was knocked out, another broke her tailbone and my little brother and I hit so hard our souls hurt. Another paratrooper story to drink to!
