Remembering Heroes from the Green Ramp
Wednesday, March 23, 2011
Military life can be the most rewarding experience, but also, even in peace time, one of the most dangerous professions.
On March 23, 1994, a fighter jet collided with a C130 over Pope AirForce Base. The resulting fire engulfed 82nd Airborne paratroopers on the ground, ammunition lit off, fuel containers expoded, and among the devastating carnage, the smoke, the fire, paratroopers do what they are trained to do...to NEVER QUIT.
