97-year-old Army vet marks D-Day anniversary with parachute jump

How great is that?
Good for him and may God bless hm for what he did for our country! 

NY Post reports:
It was a jump for the ages.

US Army veteran Tom Rice got to recreate his D-Day parachute jump on Wednesday — at the grand old age of 97.

The San Diego veteran carried the Stars and Stripes as he leaped from a C-47 transport plane over Normandy along with hundreds of other veterans to mark the momentous wartime landing 75 years ago.
The original 1944 leap, in which a bullet hit his chute, was “the worst jump I ever had,” Rice said — while Wednesday’s repeat “went perfect.”
