Every Monday night at 7pm ET on Zoom; simulcasted to Facebook and YouTube. BYOB(everage). Veterans stories, conversations, special topics, and guests. It’s one thing to “to jump out of a perfectly good airplane,” as the Airborne says, but imagine volunteering to be the first ever to do so as a US Army experiment. That’s exactly what these 50 members of the “US Army Parachute Test Platoon” 81 years ago on August 16, 1940. On the VBC Happy Hour, Monday, August 16 at 7pm, we’ll talk with Airborne vets about why they joined and what it’s like to make the leap!
