A Veteran Sweetheart…

Maj Bill White

Maj. Bill White

Maj. Bill White is the oldest living Marine at 104 years old, a Veteran of World War II and survivor of the Battle of Iwo Jima in 1945. “The fact that I even survived is something. There weren’t too many of us,” White recalled.

White was near the front lines of the battle on March 3, 1945, when a grenade exploded about six inches from, he and his fellow Marines. The injuries he sustained took him off the battlefield, but he recovered and went on to enjoy a long military career. “I spent 30 years active duty and 54 retired,” says White.

Maj. Bill White is “A Veteran Sweetheart” who has a special request this coming Valentine’s Day…. He has many medals and keepsakes from his long military career and life. This year the spirited veteran hopes to grow his collection of keepsakes with Valentine’s Day cards from friends old and new. “I’ll save every one of them…” he told Fox News.

Maj. Bill white is a fellow Veteran, and we would like to honor his request, and encourage all of you to do so as well. Such a simple request, that will have a huge impact on someone who has given so much of himself.
