KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A major in the The Royal British Legion BASE jumped from the Liberty Memorial Monday morning in an effort to raise awareness for members of the military.
Major Alastair Macartney jumped 217 feet as a tribute to service members, one year ahead of the centennial of World War I. He carried an American flag with him as he parachuted to the ground.
