War veteran makes great escape from care home to mark D-day anniversary | World news | theguardian.com
This is a British Vet but another great story is about the 90 plus year old paratrooper who repeated his D Day jump. Amazing!
An 89-year-old second world war veteran reported missing from a nursing home has been found in France, marking the anniversary of the D-day landings.
Bernard Jordan, who left The Pines care home in Furze Hill, Hove, wearing his war medals, contacted the home and said his friends were going to make sure he got back safely when the commemorations end.
