Bush Will Mark 90th Birthday with Parachute Jump

Former President George H.W. Bush "can no longer use his legs, but he isn't letting that prevent him from keeping a vow made five years ago: to jump from an aircraft on his 90th birthday, which is Thursday," the AP reports.

"The first time Bush jumped from an airplane was when his plane was shot down in World War II over the Pacific. Later, he decided to jump from a plane of his own accord and marked his 75th, 80th and 85th birthdays by skydiving."
