Saturday was Armed Forces Day, and Letterkenny Army Depot pulled out all of the stops to make the day educational and fun. Letterkenny employee Ed Sallie and his wife, Christie, of Chambersburg were content to take some of the tours around Letterkenny, but their children, Rachael, 12, and Andrew, 8, had other ideas. ā€œIā€™m retired Air Force, so we went on the cemetery tour to see the history of the place, and that was incredibly boring for them, so we promised them the bouncy house,ā€ Ed Sallie said.

chambersburg@herald-mail.com Warren Eichelberger swore Thursday was the last time he would jump out of an airplane. It took all day, but he finally did. The 71-year-old Greencastle, Pa., man said it was time to focus on activities that he can share with his wife, Mary Ann, like riding their Harley-Davidson motorcycles and snowmobiling in Canada. Eichelberger was one of about 50 veterans or relatives of men who served in the 506th Airborne Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, who were to jump during a memorial reunion Thursday.

At some point in time, we've all had our to-do lists. Some were for work; some were for school. Some were even written for us by others (wives, husbands, parents, children, etc.) I have one that I made about 10 years ago. For a while, I carried it in my wallet. Now, it's etched in my memory. On the list are six things that I'd like to do in my lifetime. 1. Write a book. 2. Run a marathon. 3. Attend a World Series game. 4. Go skydiving. 5. Visit Alaska and Hawaii.

chambersburg@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Chambersburg plans to get out of the airport business by the end of the year, but the Borough Council on Tuesday agreed to lease one of the hangars until then, and on a month-to-month basis after Dec. 31. D. Gerald Edwards is not exactly a new tenant, Borough Manager Eric Oyer said Monday. The borough had a 20-year lease with Mountain Brook Orchards, which built the hangar, for the land on which the hangar sits. Edwards sold the orchard earlier this year and the council agreed Tuesday to lease the hangar to him for $300 per month beginning Sept.

chambersburg@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, PA. - Before meeting her future husband several years ago, aviation held little romance for Kathryn Ridgway. "He was into flying and sky diving," Ridgway said recently of her husband, Joe. "Before I met him, I only flew one time in my whole life," the Fayetteville, Pa., woman said. "He even got me into sky diving," she said. Seven years later, Kathryn Ridgway is now an avid aviator and member of the U.S. Ultralight Association's Millennium Flyers 201, and coordinator of the club's fifth annual Fly-In to benefit Mercy Medical Airlift and Angel Flight, organizations that provide volunteer air transportation to patients and family members.
