Flag Jump

US Flag Jump

On July 3, 2005 I had the unique honor of flying the United States flag into the fireworks celebration at the Milwaukee lakefront. The flag I jumped had been hand-carried by my son to Iraq where it flew over FOB Gabe. He brought it back with him and I was honored to fly it in front of tens of thousands of people.
