Clocking in over 500 jumps, Command Sgt. Maj. Terry M. Sanchez, command sergeant major of the 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne), completed his final career jump at Fort Benning. Participating in the jump with him was his son, Pvt. Diego A. Sanchez assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division. Command Sgt. Maj. Sanchez commented on the bittersweet moment of passing on the torch to his son and the younger soldiers, noting the significance of getting to jump with his son before he retired. “I felt awesome, knowing that was his last one and the beginning of my jump career, and just watching him and sitting next to him on the plane and watching him jump out of the door was awesome,” said Pvt. Sanchez.
