Hat's off to Lieutenant Governor Yvonne Pretner Solon for taking the leap...literally, as she took to the skies this week above the State Capitol, and did a tandem jump to show support for military service members.

She was in good hands with the U.S. Army Parachute team known as the "Golden Knights". I would love to do this, but would never have the nerve, I can't even go near a railing and look down. Following the jump she and Governor Mark Dayton were part of a signing ceremony followed by a moment of silence in honor of the Minnesota soldiers who have died in combat since 2003.
