84-Year-Old Army Nurse Does 10 Pushups In A Challenge With TSA Agent

An 84-year-old woman is proving that age is just a number as she completes 10 push-ups in a daring challenge at the airport.


Veteran Lt. Col. Maggie DeSanti served as an army nurse in the Vietnam War.

She was at the airport in Phoenix, Arizona waiting to catch a flight to Washington D.C. through the Honor Flight organization, which helps veterans fly to the Capitol to see the monuments.

Maggie was wearing her Army uniform and wanted to prove that she was still fit for service. At the security, she challenged the TSA agent to a pushup challenge, the younger guy did not know what he bargained for as Maggie completed ten pushups with no problem at all.


The 84-year-old is proof that if we take care of our bodies, and live an active life, age will become just a number.

Verse of the Day

He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. — Isaiah 53:3-4 (NIV)
