70 Years Later, D-Day Vet and Badass Lifer Jim ‘Pee Wee’ Martin Makes Normandy Jump Again [VIDEO]

Incredible is the only way to describe the life of Jim “Pee Wee” Martin; a 93-year-old World War II veteran who jumped from a plane over Normandy just like he did 70 years ago.

Watch the video, courtesy of CNN, and try not to get goose bumps. He’s 93 years old and jumping from a plane! Jim was a hero then, and certainly is a hero today. Heck, I’m 32 and won’t even go to the top of Mt. Washington let alone jump from a plane.

Jim Martin is a man that has more heart and courage than I’ll ever have in my lifetime. It’s because of veterans like him that make it possible for people like us to watch the Kardashians on TV, or complain about the weather on Facebook.

My favorite Jim “Pee Wee” Martin quotes from the video:

“It didn’t (compare), because there wasn’t anybody shooting at me today.”

“I just want to show all the people that you don’t have to sit and die just because you get old,” he added. “Keep doing things.”

Preach on “Pee Wee”, preach on.
