A VERY old jump buddy of mine (back in the day) by the name of Ray Lowe was on the 7th Army Team back about then. His email address is:

raylowe43@msn.com

Did you know him?

Not on the team, but a sport jumper in the 509th in 72 &73. Knew a few of the guys. Sam Alston is in Atlanta area not jumping, Beezy Shaw can put you in touch with him.

Mike Wasley was the name of the ex 7th Army Team Member killed in the Golden Knights crash. Cal Callahan lives in Texas, his son is a current Golden Knight.

I used to jump with a jumper by the name of David Layne while I lived in Alabama. That's not you is it?

It's great to see that some of you old buzzards are still around. I helped form the team in 1966. I still have copies of the original brochure that we handed out to spectators and the original pennant. Any of the original members, like Callahan, still around?

Actually, Cal's son Shaun is now a member of the USASOC Parachute Team "The Black Daggers" on Fort Bragg. He left the USAPT about a year ago.
