Operation X-Wing Can't Post

I am hoping this isn't against the rules to post this here - I don't have an affiliation with this group, but stumbled upon it on another forum and it sounds like this group has a pretty awesome skydiving program they're running for wounded vets, called Operation X-wing.

The background on these guys is that they run a bunch of adventure race, endurance race type events wearing rebreathers, gas masks, packs, running with flags, etc. All stuff that makes a physically exhaustive event darn near asphyxiating. I think it's pretty awesome they are getting wounded warriors to go get their A-license. Considering it's something I'm still working on after 2 years and I'm a fully able person, I admire the wounded vets that want to attempt and eventually complete it. Very cool.
