Ranger Rendezvous

Earlier this week Miles participated in an Airborne jump as part of the 2011 Ranger Rendezvous along with 1,500 other jumpers, all members of the 75th Ranger Regiment. Finley and I went to the drop zone to watch the festivities. Fortunately it was mostly overcast and there was a nice breeze, but it still made for a pretty warm afternoon, even more so for Miles!

Miles will be leaving his unit soon to go to a six month course (here at Fort Benning) all officers must attend as part of their career progression. Around October we should find out where we'll be moving to next spring. We are hoping our options include Fort Carson, Colorado or Fort Lewis, Washington. I'd love to be on the west coast closer to my side of the family. Depending on what's ahead for Miles career-wise, this could potentially be our last move in the military. Only time will tell though. . . .

Here are some pictures from the jump. Enjoy!




 
 It was neat the first time, but 1,500 jumpers later and this guy was ready to go.
