When a neighborhood child at a pool was too afraid to jump off the diving board, there was one man who knew just what to do to show the kid how to be brave.

Michael Biss, a 95-year-old WWII and Korean War veteran, was determined to show the child how to dive with a brave face, but Michael had his own physical hurdles to overcome.

With assistance from family and friends, he carefully climbed up the board with his cane and walked toward the edge of the board before jumping.

Michael’s daughter, Christine Ross recorded the sweet moment her dad took his big dive.

“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 song for every situation,” according to Christine.

Michael’s wife of 72 years is also a veteran. She served in the Coast Guard as an administrative aid.

Kevin Ross, Michael’s grandson added, “Little did we know he would actually dive. He said soon after this video that he wants to be seen around the world.”
