In 1959 13 men joined together to form the Strategic Army Corps Sport Parachute Team, to compete in the then communist dominated sport of skydiving.

The team performed so well that on June 1, 1961 the Army officially recognized, designated and activated the team as the U.S. Army Parachute Team.
For 50 years the “Golden Knights” have been wowing audiences at air shows, competitions and most recently, with high profile tandems.
