Earl Cooley Turns 97

by Doug Houston |

Earl Cooley turns a young 97 on September 26th. One of the first smokejumpers and the first to make a fire jump with Rufus Robinson, he is doing well, living at home with his wife Irene.

All of the kids are showing up for the big occasion. So, let's all hoist one in his honor Friday, the 26th.
