This week the “Meet Your Army” initiative arrived in the Oklahoma City metro.

From Sept. 20-22, people from all over the community got a chance to interact with members of the armed forces.

This week included an event that featured the Army Golden Knights, the Army’s official parachute team. News 9’s Ashley Holden was one of the lucky community members who received a chance to tandem skydive with the team.

On Sept. 22 the Oklahoma Sooners will face off with the U.S. Military Academy’s Black Knights.

Before and after the game there will be displays and activities for fans.

The Oklahoma National Guard will also provide a flyover and members of the Black Daggers are scheduled to parachute in the game ball.
