Among his many medals is the one he’s most proud of — his Purple Heart. It is a badge of honor for surviving the Battle of Iwo Jima.
Now he wants to add to his collection. He wants Valentine’s Day cards.
“I’ll save every one of them like I’ve been saving little things that have come up until right now and they’ll be a personal part of my history,” he told KTXL.
He said the secret to living to 104 is to “just keep breathing.” “I can’t think of anything else. I can give you all sorts of ideas and suggestions but if you’re not breathing, they don’t mean anything,” he said.
