Killed In The Line Of Duty

This information is a tribute to the more than 5,000 men and women who have served our nation as smokejumpers since the start of the program in 1939.

These are the accounts of the lives and deaths of the more than 30 smokejumpers who have been killed in the line of duty. Read their stories. You'll find they were no more heroic or foolhardy than those of us who have also worked the "best job in the world" and survived.

These jumpers were simply doing their jobs when their luck ran out. If you are a jumper, you will identify with many of them.
