On July 11, footage of U.S. Air Force veteran Michael Bliss, who served in both World War II and the Korean War, went viral on Facebook for his daring stunt.
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 a song for every situation,” Bliss’ daughter Christine Ross told USA Today.
Brave Bliss isn’t the only family member who has served; his wife of 72 years is also a veteran, having served in the Coast Guard as an administrative aid.
OMG my anxiety level went through the roof when he teetered on the end of the board … great job .. STILL and ALWAYS will be a HERO!!!” one user wrote.
Way to go sir! Thank you and your wife for your service,” another fan added.
Bless his heart thank you sir for your services in the military but you’re also a hero to a little boy that was afraid to go in the pool,” another agreed.
