In regards to the upcoming Team Fastrax™ Warrior Weekend To Remember, John Hart, owner of Start Skydiving, and founder of Team Fastrax, said, “The Team Fastrax™ Warrior Weekend To Remember is very important to our team. Members of Team Fastrax have served the United States of America as part of the Armed Forces, many in combat. So, to be a part of an event so special, that will put a smile on the faces of so many of our wounded active duty and veteran armed forces members, is a great honor. God bless America, and God bless the men and women who have served, and those who continue to serve our country.”
