August 16 is National Airborne Day.

So, on this day, I want to pay tribute to my comrades with whom I have had the privilege of serving. Also I want to extend my admiration and respect to the countless paratroopers, present and future who, with noble intentions and self-sacrificing dedication, guard us against those who would harm us.
