US Army Golden Knights

This Troop Salute is a bit of a personal message from all of us here on the show. We had an opportunity recently to fly with The Golden Knights team as they went up for a performance. It was an incredible honor and a “bucket list” day that none of us will ever forget. For 60 years, members of the Army Parachute Team have been marking milestones of achievement as “Ambassadors of the Army”. The Golden Knights are the most formidable parachuting competitors and demonstrators working anywhere today. The professionalism, the precision, and the excellence displayed by these soldiers is a glowing beacon of what the army has to offer, and what our forces are capable of. On more than 30 weekends per year, the team demonstrates their skills, nerves, and capabilities to crowds all around the US. While the shows always “wow” the crowd, the work and the dedication that these soldiers put in to show America, and the rest of the world, is the real achievement. And these demonstrations of precision parachuting aren’t only for fun. These are the very same skills that American soldiers and paratroopers are training every day to keep America on top. If we need to land a man on the roof of a building or in the middle of a walled yard, the Golden Knights show us just how capable we are of doing just that. For their heroic demonstrations, and for taking us on a ride we’ll never forget, today we salute the Army Golden Knights Parachuting Team.

We live in the land of the free, because of the brave!
