Sunday, Loy Brydon passed away. He was a 5th Group alumni from Vietnam, prior to that he was one of the original 13 Golden Knights. If you ever jumped a parachute with a TU modification, thank Loy Brydon, the TU was his brain-child in 1960. He also helped design the first piggyback parachute container in 1964. US Parachute Association D-12 (mine is 20712 to put things into perspective), he would receive their Lifetime Acheivement award in 1993.

A pioneer.
