WWII Nurse Goes Skydiving To Celebrate Her 100th Birthday

A WWII nurse from Sebastian, Florida, celebrated her 100th birthday by jumping out of a place.

Raymonde Sullivan brought the idea up to her friends two years ago and told them she would go skydiving if she made it to triple digits.

She had done a lot of things in her life, but never got the chance to skydive, so she figured she must do it while she still can.

Her friends never believed her, but she recently turned 100 and made sure she kept her promise.

The brave birthday girl jumped out of the plane with an instructor, free-falling from 10,000 feet in the air at 120mph.

Although she said it was scary at first, the beautiful view made it worth it, and they made a successful landing.

Originally from England, Sullivan once served as a nurse during World War II, caring for injured soldiers on the frontlines.

Sullivan’s husband was a war hero and pilot, which is what got her so interested in skydiving in the first place.

After her skydiving adventure, Sullivan celebrated her birthday at The Castle in Fort Pierce, surrounded by family and friends.

It’s safe to say that Sullivan’s 100th birthday is one she will never forget!
