Golden Knights Jump Start All-Star Game

The Golden Knights, the United States Army’s official parachute team, opened the Coastal Plain League All-Star Game on Monday night.

The lead jumper descended onto The Swamp with the American flag at the conclusion of the Star Spangled Banner to start the All-American game in the All-American city.

Following him were seven other members of the Knights displaying acrobatic parachuting techniques. The final jumper delivered the game ball to Sergeant James Brown, a Vietnam war veteran and Purple Heart recipient.
