Happy Airborne Day - A Day Late
I didn't realize that yesterday was the officially designated National Airborne Day. The first official Army airborne jump was made on August 16, 1940. Thus August 16th was the day was designated by Congress in 2001 to honor those who have or are serving in the US Army Airborne.
So while it is a day late, I'd like to recognize two fellow gun bloggers who served in the 82nd Airborne Division: Kurt Hoffman and Sean Sorrentino. They, much like the Airborne is to the Big Army, are at the forefront of the fight to preserve our Second Amendment rights.
So to them and all the others who served in the various Airborne divisions, brigades, and other such units, thank you for your service.
If I have missed other gun bloggers who are airborne vets, let me know in the comments.
