In 2012 we attended the Wings, Wheels & Warriors Air Show and one of the (many terrific) performers that day was the U.S. Army Golden Knights. I wrote about the team in 2012 on Digital Journal after seeing the show and had corresponded with an Army spokesperson to learn more about the team's history and mission.
(Fun fact: Some of the individuals who have jumped with the team include 41st President George H.W. Bush, Chuck Norris, Geraldo Rivera and Bill Murray).
Today's Photos on Friday flashes back to the Golden Knight's performance in Manassas, Virginia on May 12, 2012.
