Command Sgt. Maj. Kevin Engel lands at Elizabethtown Memorial Gardens during the funeral of James Maynard Pile, to honor the veteran Saturday. The family wanted a skydiver at the funeral of their loved one, who was an Army paratrooper in World War II and was shot upon landing on a battlefield in France.

I am impressed. Great Photo.
Had a good friend who parachuted behind the lines at Normandy and into Holland. He was also trucked into the Bulge. Those men are to be respected.
