Thank You Kevin for your service and dedication to this country! Hope to get some jumps in together anywhere this season. Until then keep up the epic work and stay safe.

Here at Pussfoot we appreciate members of the armed forces. Many members of the skydive community are either active service members or veterans and we thought it would be great to honor them here on our page. We will be bringing you a bio every week of our featured "Freedom Flyers" with hopes that you learn something new and share in our appreciation of what these people do for our country.
