Professional Skydiving Team will pay tribute to Army Staff Sgt. Jessica Wing at upcoming Vet Fest
On Saturday, August 26, 2017, Team Fastrax™ will be performing at the 2017 VetFest in Dayton, OH. The team will skydive in to the event with their majestic 2,000 sq. ft. American Flag. Team Fastrax™ is a huge supporter of veteran events and is dedicating this particular jump to Fallen Hero, Army Staff Sgt. Jessica Wing.
According to the Military Times, Wing was a helicopter crew chief assigned to the 1st Battalion, 126th Aviation Regiment out of Bangor. The unit provides medical evacuation to patients and military personnel using medically equipped UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters. Wing served in the guard for eight years and was on active duty in the Army for 11 years before that, according to the Maine National Guard. She was deployed to Haiti and Bosnia while in the Army and was sent to the Middle East three times while with the Guard.
“Vet Fest is a great family friendly event that honors our Nation’s veterans. We can’t wait to be a part of this special day.” says John Hart, Owner of Start Skydiving and Founder of Team Fastrax
