Choice vs. Regulation

A group of WWII Airborne vets want to parachute into Normady on the 60th anniversary but is denied by the Army as being too dangerous. I have problem with that decision. It is not like they are amateurs. They did it 60 years ago for the country with bullets and shells exploding around them. That was dangerous to their health. Now they want to do it with all the safety equipment required for modern parachute jumping. I am sure they know the dangers and accepted them just like 60th years ago on D-Day. I sincerely hope the decision is reversed and the vets get to jump next month.
