A skydiver with two prosthetic legs jumped out of an airplane to carry a huge American flag down to the 80th Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota over the weekend.
Sgt. 1st Class Dana Bowman, is a former Special Forces soldier and a member of the Army’s Golden Knights parachute team, which is also how he lost his legs. He suffered the injuries in a mid-air collision during a Golden Knights training incident that left a fellow skydiver dead.
According to the Defense Department, he was the first double-amputee to reenlist.
He has 4,000 jumps under his belt, many of them after the accident, according to Black Hills Fox, a South Dakota station.
