I did it!!
Well I did it! I jumped out of a perfectly good airplane 14,000 feet high and parachuted back down to the ground. You may think I'm crazy but it was all for a wonderful amazing cause. And here's the scary part, I'd do it again!!! The Wounded Warrior Project is why we were out at Skydive Suffolk all day yesterday, August the 14th. Wounded service men and women with their families in tow came from all over the United States to have their opportunity to Skydive. They were all wounded heroes who just wanted a chance to have some fun for a day. And for the rest of us, it was our chance to say "thank you" to them for what they have done for our country and our freedoms. On-air for the past couple of weeks we've been asking you wonderful listeners to donate whatever you could to the Wounded Warrior Project by getting on line at woundedwear.com. If you donated thank you so much for doing so. If you haven't and would still like to please go to that website. Anything you can do is very much appreciated. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the families of the fallen Seals from last weekends attack. We definitely had those men and their families in our thoughts and prayers yesterday too.
Well that's it for me. Such an emotional day. Check out the video for some laughs (but try not to laugh too too hard). And when you get to the part where I'm inside the plane heading up into the sky, notice the first jumper to go...that was why I did what I did. It was very powerful. Peace to you all and as always thanks for listening.
