Story by SGT Christopher Osburn on 09/13/2017COLUMBIA, S.C. (Sept. 08, 2017) -- Approximately 12,000 feet in the sky, Joe Mergo arches his back and smiles as he tumbles from an airplane with the U.S. Army logo on its tail. Mergo doesn't have a cord to pull to open the chute, however. The person in charge of deploying the parachute is, instead, a highly-trained member of a United States Army parachute team, the Golden Knights. After about one minute of free fall the Golden Knight pulls open the chute and the pair ride the wind lazily down to the ground.
