A 99-year-old World War II paratrooper veteran parachuted out of a helicopter on Tuesday to honor U.S. veterans, NBC News reported.

Jim “Pee Wee” Martin parachutes to commemorate veterans and was part of a paratroopers regiment in World War II, according to an NBC News video.

“You’re standing at door you may have a little, little apprehension, but no fear. No fear at all,” Martin said, an NBC News video shows.

The Huey helicopter Martin jumped out of is the same type his late son used in Vietnam, according to the NBC video.

“And how do I feel about my personal service? I’m proud of what I did and our people are proud of it, but we don’t go around and talk about it. It’s not necessary,” Martin said, according to the video.

Martin also mentioned COVID-19 to NBC and encouraged others to wear masks.

“Protect each other and that starts with wearing a mask,” Martin said, in the video.

Martin did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
