An American D-Day veteran is getting closer to his goal of leaping out of planes when he’s 100 years old.

98-year-old D-Day veteran Tom Rice caused a sensation in June when he parachuted into Normandy for the 75th anniversary of D-Day. On Thursday, he parachuted into the Netherlands for the 75th anniversary of Operation Market Garden, a land and airborne landing that took place in September of 1944.

Rice jumped with the U.S. Army’s 101st Airborne Division on D-Day.
