517th Airborne Reunion 2008

CAJT traveled to the St. Louis area to jump in honor of the 517th PRCT at their 2008 National Reunion.  Due to the major flooding in the area, the primary DZ went under water and scrubbed the planned operation at St Charles County Smartt Airport.  The mission was quickly rescheduled to take place at St Charles Municipal Airport with help from many entities.  The jump was a total success and the main goal of the team was met by providing the veterans and their families with a live airborne jump from the Great Lakes CAF C47, Black Sparrow.
