The Alpha 5 Project is a mission to raise $1 million for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF) by setting a new world record for the highest HALO formation skydive. The team will ascend to 35,000 feet using a specially designed balloon. The team consists of Larry Connor, CMSgt. Brandon Daugherty, MSgt. Rob Dieguez, CMSgt. (Ret) Chris Lais, and MSgt. (Ret) Jimmy Petrolia. The project will take place at New Mexico Military Institute and the world record jump is set to take place on Thursday, September 28th (weather permitting). The balloon will launch before dawn from NMMI’s Stapp Parade Field. All spectators are invited to watch from the Wool Bowl parking lot.
