Age is just a number. A new record has been set for the oldest man to go skydiving! His is Verdun, he’s a D-Day veteran, and he’s 101 years young.
He’s 101 years and 37 days old, to be exact… beating the last man of 101 years and three days old, which was the previous record.
Verdun had the idea of going skydiving for over a decade, since he turned 90. His wife said no to the idea, but since then she’s passed, and he’s fulfilled his dream of jumping at over 15,000 feet, and he said he’d “do it again tomorrow, truthfully.”
Life GOALS. Congrats, Verdun! Thanks for your service!
