Army’s First 4th Generation Paratrooper Graduates (Video)

Following a family tradition that spans the entirety of US Army Airborne training, Cadet Meghan Copenhaver became the very first 4th generation Paratrooper upon her graduation. The tradition began when her great-grandfather Col. John Hughes earned his wings in 1942 and later jumped at Normandy during WWII.
