Sky High Re-Up

Senior Airman Justin Gordon prepares to jump

Dark clouds litter the sky on a Friday morning as water droplets fall to a wheat field below. This is a normal day in Germany, but the view is different for Senior Airman Justin Gordon.

At 2,000 feet above the clouds, he decides to take the plunge into another three years of commitment as a survival, evasion, resistance and escape specialist in the U.S. Air Force. His hand raises to recite the oath of enlistment for a second time from the ramp of a C-130J Super Hercules.

He drops his salute and takes another look at the dark clouds littered across the sky.

He jumps.

Upon landing, satisfaction hits. He landed another jump and will continue to do so for the next three years.

“Jumping is close to my heart, and close to the career field. So it was nice to extend my time in the career field with something that we do.”
