D-Day Veteran, 93, Honors Anniversary by Jumping Over Normandy Again [VIDEO]

Jim 'Pee Wee' Martin

Jim ‘Pee Wee’ Martin was not about to let the 70th anniversary of D-Day go by without showing his respects.

The 93-year-old Martin, who served with the US 101st Airborne Division that parachuted down over Utah Beach, re-created the scene this week by jumping out of another plane in the same region in Normandy.

So, how was it this time around? Martin said it wasn’t even close. “It didn’t (compare) because there wasn’t anybody shooting at me today.”
