1992 April 22 - Not Forgotten Can't Post

Almost 25 years since I got this shirt. Its gone now, but I got get a pic before it went.

I didn't know any of the individuals, but their story always stuck with me. Their spilled blood was some of what it took to write the seatbelt policies we have now. (Oh, the laws predated it, but it seems that we needed proof that we needed them) My own DZ's didn't really do anything with seatbelts until after this, and after the FAA and USPA pushed the issue.

I am sure some of you knew one or more of them. To their friends and family, just as I know you have not forgotten them, please know that the lessons learned on their worst day have not been forgotten either.

For those that don't know/weren't around, you might look it up... its our history and our lessons, and all too often its gained at a very high price.

Sigh...

I still have my shirt. I lost many, many dear friends that day.

It's a brutal reminder to keep our helmets and seat belts on.
