The Army's Golden Knights Parachute Team jumped into the Rimrock Rodeo for a special Military Appreciation Day Tuesday.

The Golden Knights performed several aerial maneuvers before making pin point landings inside the rodeo arena. The Knights made a special Golden Baton presentation to the Grand Junction Wounded Warriors after the jump.

"It's very humbling that they picked us to receive this tonight. We just love the military dearly and we are great supporters of the military," says Debbie England with the Wounded Warriors.

The Golden Baton was passed hand to hand by the parachute team during free fall.

The Golden Knights have been performing for the past 50 years.
