SGM CHRISTOPHER L. CALLAN
The Rhode Island National Guard is deeply saddened to share the news of the passing of Sergeant Major Christopher Callan, the Senior Operations NCO, for the HHD, 56th Troop Command. SGM Callan served his country and state honorably for more than 30 years, 14 of those with the Rhode Island Army National Guard. The entire RING family mourns his loss and holds all of SGM Callan's family, friends and brothers and sisters in uniform, both in the RING and the East Greenwich Police Department, in their thoughts.
As we prepare to honor SGM Callan for all of his years of selfless service, we are reaching out to those of you with photographs, remembrances, and condolences to submit them to our LEAPFEST email address - firstname.lastname@example.org.
The photos and kind words may bring comfort to his family and friends, especially coming from those of you in the LEAPFEST community.
We thank you in advance for your thoughts, prayers, help, and support during these difficult times.

COVID-19 UPDATE - MAY 2020:
LEAPFEST 2020 is Officially Cancelled
This difficult decision is based on our continued prioritization of competitor and spectator safety, and the potential harm that may result from running such a popular and well-attended event. Additionally, the travel and social distancing restrictions that are now in effect make it impractical to conduct an International Parachute Competition here in Rhode Island. We are deeply disappointed to have to make this announcement and hope that everyone will join us next year for LEAPFEST 2021!
If you have Registered for LEAPFEST 2020, you will be contacted via email with more information regarding this cancellation. If you have submitted your Registration Payment, a refund will be forthcoming.
Thank you for your continued support of LEAPFEST!
Registration for LEAPFEST 2020 will open the first week of March. To register, follow the link below and download the appropriate forms.
