Minnesota Lt. Governor Yvonne Prettner Solon Skydiving With Army Parachute Team

Today at the state Capitol, Lieutenant Governor Yvonne Prettner Solon joined the U.S. Army Parachute Team, nicknamed the "Golden Knights," in a tandem skydive exercise in St. Paul. In a show of support for the men and women who serve our nation in uniform, Lt. Governor Prettner Solon jumped from an altitude of 12,500 feet and fell at a rate of 120 miles per hour before making a safe landing on the lower mall of the Minnesota State Capitol grounds. Following the jump, Prettner Solon joined Governor Mark Dayton and Secretary of State Mark Ritchie for a Community Covenant signing ceremony, collectively demonstrating their support for military service members and their families. Community Covenant is an initiative that began in 2008, inviting communities across America to show their support for military families in a time of war. The ceremony included a brief moment of silence for the 104 Minnesotans who have given their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2003.
