ST. PAUL, MN (AP) - Parachutes are about to punctuate the sky over Minnesota's Capitol.
An elite team of Navy skydivers planned to jump from a plane to the Capitol lawn on Wednesday afternoon as part of a Navy Week celebration in the state. The Leap Frogs, as they're called, are active-duty personnel sanctioned by the Department of Defense. The Leap Frogs are also scheduled to take part in festivities later this week in Duluth.
Two years ago, Lieutenant Governor Yvonne Prettner Solon joined an Army team in a tandem jump over the Capitol.
