A 93-year-old World War II veteran returned this week to a battlefield in western France the same way he first arrived 70 years ago — he parachuted in, this time carrying an American flag. Jim “Pee Wee” Martin joined parachuters from around he world in a jump Thursday to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Normandy by Allied forces. Martin, who lives near Dayton, Ohio, told reporters awaiting his landing that he feels “kind of humbled and embarrassed at the adulation because I don’t feel we did anything that we weren’t supposed to do or anything exceptional.”
