D-Day Veteran, 97, Parachutes Out of Plane for 75th Anniversary of Battle
Seventy-five years after he jumped out of plane on D-Day, veteran paratrooper Tom Rice repeated the feat in the same area of northern France.
In June of 1944, he was serving with the 101st Airborne Division. Now 97, Rice was part of the massive D-Day invasion that put Allied troops on the ground in Normandy during World War II.
"And that was hard going," Rice recalled. "The D-Day jump, I landed standing up for the most part and then went down to my knees and bounced a couple times because I had so much equipment and I had a difficult time getting out of that equipment."
He called that jump the worst one he ever had. A bullet even went through his parachute, he said.
But this time around, the only shooting came from photographers' cameras.
