VIDEO: 97-Year Old Veteran Parachutes into Normandy!
Seeing this video made me extremely proud! Tomorrow, June 6th, is the 75 anniversary of the D-Day Invasion of Normandy, and on it's eve, a veteran of the 101st Airborne, Tom Rice, parachuted in to Normandy just like he did back on that day of days three quarters of a century ago.
Here's a link with more about Tom and the ceremonies honoring the troops who landed there (link).
As a veteran and former paratrooper myself, whose father was a soldier during World War II, I am in awe of the service members who answered our nation's call and blazed the trail before my time in the military. They faced extreme peril and in many cases, made the supreme sacrifice for our country and for the world.
They literally saved the world.
My gratitude is not nearly enough, but it is all I have to give. Thank you to our World War II veterans.
