Lawrence Brooks, a veteran of World War II, turns an amazing 111 years old on Sept. 12.
Instead of his usual birthday party at the World War II Museum, museum officials are hoping to shower him with birthday cards this year.
During World War II, Pfc. Brooks served in the 91st Engineer Battalion, which was stationed in New Guinea and then the Philippines. He lives in New Orleans.
Well-wishers should send their cards to:
The National WWII Museum
c/o Happy 111th Mr. Brooks!
