East Texas Soldier Goes Skydiving

When he arrived home to East Texas after six months in Iraq, Lieutenant Matthew Wilson, was given two weeks to spend doing whatever he wanted, and he wanted to fly.

Lieutenant Wilson, surrounded by his family, went sky diving today at the East Texas Skydiving Club in Gladewater. This is his first time for Wilson to take the plunge.

Wilson, who leaves for Iraq again in a few days just wanted to make his trip home unforgettable. Lieutenant Wilson is a West Point graduate and has two more years of service.

He leaves for Iraq again, this Sunday.
