For the second consecutive summer, the Elite Frogs parachute display team, comprised of U.S. Navy SEALs, parachuted over Lake Wawasee. The event happened Saturday and was an organized fundraiser for the team.
Approximately 50 boats anchored in Johnson’s Bay to watch the choreographed presentation of the colors, which included a 2,500-square-foot American flag made especially for Saturday’s jump, and demonstrations of the team’s skills and training.
The SEALs proudly and heroically serve the country every day. SEAL Team 6 was behind the killing of Osama bin Laden. Three months later, 30 American servicemen — 22 of whom were SEALs — lost their own lives, on Aug. 6, 2011, when the Taliban shot down a U.S. helicopter over Afghanistan.
The Elite Frogs Parachute Team is a team made up of active duty and retired Navy SEALs and demonstrations like Saturdays are done to raise funds for the Navy SEAL Foundation. The funding for the SEAL Foundation comes solely from donations.
