CINCINNATI -- Professional skydivers and a fellow Army Golden Knight have paid tribute to the military parachutist killed in an accident at a Chicago air show by landing at his funeral service.
Hundreds of other mourners joined the skydivers Saturday for the funeral of 32-year-old Master Sgt. Corey Hood in his Ohio hometown. The Army Golden Knights skydiver died Aug. 16, a day after he and another parachutist collided during a performance.
Hood served five tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan and earned numerous awards, including two Bronze Stars.
