World War II veteran skydives in effort to recruit members for US Army

Several veterans went skydiving in Homestead, including a 91-year-old World War II veteran. This was Perry Cormen’s third time jumping out of a plane. However, this time, he did it at 91 years young and with the Army’s elite Golden Knights.”Keep your mind active and keep your body moving, too,” Cormen advised. Cormen was a World War II bomber pilot and got the chance to relive his time in the air. “I want to prove to myself that at my age, you can do almost anything,” he said.Cormen’s skydive with the Golden Knights was part of an effort to help spread awareness about the U.S. military.”Today is the opportunity to take these men and ladies and really just spread the word about what the Army can do for us and what we can do for you,” Command Sgt. Maj. Anthony Stoneburg said.Under a new authorization act signed by President Barack Obama in December, members of the military have to recruit more than ever before.
