ADS Presents – Two Marines, Worlds Apart, Jumping for The Same Purpose

Combat Wounded Coalition’s 8th Annual JUMPING FOR A PURPOSE | Saturday, October 15th, 2016

Presented by Geico Military Team and Skydive Suffolk

ADS was honored to be a sponsor of the 8th annual Jumping for A Purpose skydiving charity event. Skydive Suffolk and Combat Wounded Coalition partnered together with the ultimate goal of giving our wounded warriors renewed hope and inspiration. Skydiving is a feat most people wouldn’t do even if they weren’t injured. This event reminds our wounded warriors that they too are capable of anything and it teaches them to continue to live life to the fullest despite their debilitating injuries.

During opening remarks, Jay Redman, founder of Combat Wounded Coalition & Wounded Wear and also a wounded warrior, described the brief moment of hesitation before jumping out of a plane 10,000 feet in the air as a moment where “wounded warriors recognize once again that they’re still alive and can live greatly and overcome anything.”
Also in attendance were several event sponsors, non-profit organizations and Virginia delegates including Virginia Senator, 8th District, Bill DeSteph and Suffolk Mayor Linda Johnson. Mayor Johnson had this to say in the opening ceremony:

“To have this event in our city is such an honor. The morning left me feeling so inspired and grateful for the heroes that build, protect and defend our country. Watching the Gold Star Flag come down through the clouds was a chilling reminder of the sacrifices families have made for us. Thank you to all who make these events possible. God bless our warriors and our country.”
– Mayor Linda Johnson, Suffolk, VA

A total of 10 wounded warriors and 5 Gold Star family members were sponsored to skydive. ADS had the unique opportunity to meet these brave men and women first hand, to hear their story and share in their joy as a result of this event.

For two American heroes, the time and experience they had while serving are worlds apart but their purpose for jumping is very much the same.
