ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- Evelyn Stolz of St. Louis is 90 years old.  She wanted to be a parachute rigger when she served in the Navy in World War II.

She couldn't because of her small stature.

Now, her dream has come true.

Reporter: "How'd it go? How'd it go?"

"Oh, how'd it go? It was wonderful!" says Stolz.

Reporter: "What was the best part of it?"

"Well, it's hard...I mean, just coming out of it, you know, just getting out of there!"

Stolz's family said she wanted to get the jump in before she turns 91 in August.
