ZUUM Transportation Honors our Heroes for Veteran’s Day 2020

In appreciation of Veteran’s Day, we celebrate one of the heroes who works behind the scenes here at ZUUM Transportation. Chris Lee, our Vice President of Business Development is a veteran Marine and Reservist and continues to advocate for the community by serving as a board member of the Bird’s Eye View Project. On Wednesday, November 11, 2020, the Bird’s Eye View Project will be commemorating the day with the Veterans Day Live Skydive and BASE Jump at the National WWI Museum and Memorial in Kansas City, OK. The event will be aired live on Fox News and Fox and Friends starting at 4:30AM CST. The Skydive will begin at 6:30AM Central and BASE Jump at 7:00AM CST.

The Birds Eye View Project raises awareness and funds to support American veterans and first responders. Since many nonprofit organizations need resources to implement successful awareness campaigns, the Birds Eye View Project partners with charities dedicated to veterans and military service members by providing a platform to share their missions and expand their reach. They organize public events where volunteers and veterans engage in extreme sports, such as skydiving and base jumping to garner attention and raise money for partnering charities. This is an incredible way to connect people to the sacrifices our veterans and first responders have made for their country.

This year the Bird’s Eye View Project brings veterans from WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Cold War, Desert Storm, Iraq, Afghanistan and a 9/11 first responder to participate in the All Veteran Group Parachute Team over the National WWI Museum and Memorial. Upon landing, Ryan “Birdman” Parrott, founder of the Bird’s Eye Project will make a missing man remembrance BASE Jump from the 217’ tower. The oldest jumper participating is 96-years-old.

Chris has served on the Bird’s Eye View Board of Directors for over three years and acknowledges that the organization has provided him with the opportunity to continuously support the community. “I work with Birds Eye View Project, doing extreme sports for extreme needs, so I can keep serving and give back to those Veterans and First Responders that have given so much,” says Chris Lee.

At ZUUM Transportation, we would like to thank Chris Lee as well as all U.S. veterans and first responders for their service and dedication. We salute you.
