Bush 41 Had Some Veterans Day Weekend Fun

The 83 year-old former president was skydiving again. This time he was celebrating the reopening of his presidential museum.

It was the former president’s sixth skydive and his first since 2004, when he jumped to celebrate his 80th birthday. Bush jumped on Saturday strapped to an expert from the U.S. Army Golden Knights parachute team, as he did three years ago.[…]

Bush’s first parachute jump came in 1944 when he was shot down over the Pacific island of Chi Chi Jima.

That’s pretty cool. One of these days I’ll get around to doing it. (No, not geting shot down over the Pacific; let that be for braver men than me. I mean skydiving.)
