THOMAS TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Tina Peters wanted to do something special as a salute to her son's service to his country as he heads back to Iraq for a second tour -- so she's going to jump out of an airplane.
The thing is, the 57-year-old woman has never done that before.
"My mom's crazy," said Air Force Staff Sgt. Jason Peters, 31. "I'll be sitting back with the insurance agent, watching."
His older brother, Ray Peters, 32, plans to skydive with their mother Sunday in a "Jumping for Jason" event at Browne Airport in Saginaw County.
Tina Peters said she wasn't nervous about the jump.
"One of us will scream like a little girl, and it's not gonna be me," she told The Saginaw News.
Jason Peters, like his mother, has never jumped out of a plane, but unlike her he has no plans to do so.
Jason Peters, a member of the 75th Logistics Readiness Squadron, is scheduled to be deployed next week for about 10 months.
"I'm not looking forward to going back, but I'm not crazy enough to jump out of a plane," he said.
