A 95-year-old WWII and Korean War veteran, Michael Biss, was determined to inspire a little boy too afraid to jump from the diving board at a neighborhood pool. Although Biss walks with a cane, he stepped up to the board, flexed a muscle, and jumped. With a little help from friends and family, he showed the boy how to be brave.
His daughter, Christine Ross, recorded the moment of her dad’s dive. See the video to the right. She showed great admiration for her father, saying “he is very spry for his age – he’s 95 soon to be 96-years-old and is both a WWII and Korean War veteran in the U.S. Air Force. He is full of amazing stories and has song for every situation.”
