World War II Vet Celebrates 107th Birthday

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- One of the oldest living World War II veterans in the U.S. is celebrating a huge milestone.

Elmer Hill turned 107 this week.

He lives at an assisted living center in Henderson, Texas.

The former Navy sailor fought in world war two and for him, the memories are still vivid.

"And I was on a ship, on a carrier, and we had 30 planes on the carrier," said Hill.

Elmer's daughter says lately her dad's mind is outworking his body.

But she says he works out any chance he gets.
