Cathy Luttrell has story on parachute drop at Green River lake

They were from Ft. Knox, and it was a pretty awesome sight, even for those who have seen parachute exercises at military bases

Cathy Luttrell writes:
This was an excercise conducted by troops out of Ft. Knox. My husband is a park ranger at Green River and he said that they would be jumping from around 9:00-12:00 this past Saturday. The soldiers are required so many jumps in order to complete their training, one of which I believe, has to be into water. They decided to use Green River since it may be the closest body of water for them. They also had the soldiers families at the Corp Visitor Center for a picnic afterwards. We drove over to the dam and were able to see four of the jumpers. We had seen parachuters at Ft. Benning but this was pretty awesome to see them jumping into the water. --Cathy Luttrell
