Inverted colors for Golden Knights' 50th Anniversary.

This paratroopers' parachute reads "1959 2009 50th" and it's colors are the reverse of the other Golden Knights' chutes. For those wishing to become one of the few, the Golden Knights hold an annual tryout and selection program by which qualified Army men and women are invited to attend a grueling and mentally challenging 6-week course, while temporarily assigned to the team at Ft. Bragg, NC. During this event, applicants will typically make 150-200 freefall parachute jumps and will lose an average of 5-10lbs of body weight due to the highly challenging regimen of jumping, technical classes, and physical training.
