WATCH: Veteran, 95, teaches young boy how to overcome his fear

 

 

An Air Force veteran showed no fear when he taught a young boy a valuable lesson on how to be brave.

Daniel Biss, 95, is a veteran of both World War II and the Korean War, USA Today reports. He was sitting by the pool when he a noticed a young boy was too afraid to jump off the diving board.

Biss walks with a cane and needs some assistance getting around, but he wasn't about to let his physical hurdles stop him from showing the young boy how to dive. 

He has his family and friends help him over to the diving board. Slowly, he got on to the board and walked to the edge. Family members were clearly nervous when he stumbled just a bit.

More determined than ever, the veteran flexed his muscles and then jumped into the pool.

“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," his daughter, Christine Ross, told USA Today.

Bliss' wife is also a veteran. The 72-year-old served in the Coast Guard.
