97-year-old Veteran Paratrooper Lands in Normandy

Normandy Paratrooper Veteran

Very few of the "Greatest Generation," the men and women who served the Allied forces during WWII, still survive today. But those who do still live up to that title -- living well into their late nineties and beyond, and doing so with a great appreciation of life and freedom.

During the commemorative events of the 75th anniversary of D-Day, veterans who had stormed the beaches of Normandy as young men returned, some by way of parachute, as they had that same day. A 97-year-old American veteran was one of these men, and you can watch the video of his successful jump here.
