A World War II veteran marked his 100th birthday with a commemorative skydive over his hometown of Coronado, California, on August 15.
Veteran Tom Rice landed on the beach in front of Hotel Del Coronado after he jumped from 7,500 feet.
Rice parachuted from a C-47 over Normandy to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day in June 2019.
Rice said he felt “great” after the jump, and plans to do another for his 101st birthday. Credit: Carol East/CJ Machado via Storyful
