So, did you hear......

about the parachutist landing on the Army Band at a ceremony on Fort Riley??!?!??!?

My husband mentioned it to me the other day and I thought it was just a funny little thing that happened, no big deal, but apparently it WAS a big deal as my mom says it was all over TV and 2 family members asked her about it!! I did a google search and came up with the following...

I didn't hear about this until my mom called me. Then I asled Jacob about it, he said he heard about it from his dad! I find it funny that we all live here but didn't know about it until people from out of state called. lol
