Abstract:
Ltc. Sion H. Harrington, III repeats of a story told to him by Chaplin Larry Smedley of the 82nd Airborne Division of a paratrooper exercise at the Jungle Operations Training Center training in Panama. Smedley was on a jump exercise as an enlisted man years before when an accident happened. A mechanical failure occurred during the jump and many of Smedley’s fellow soldiers jumped into the path of an oncoming aircraft and were killed when they hit the plane’s propellers. Smedley relates how his life was spared during the exercise and how the accident caused him to become a chaplain in the Army.
