So when I saw this news story I just knew I had to share it with everyone! The nation’s oldest living World War II veteran, Lawrence Brooks, has turned another year older. Not only is Lawrence Brooks 112 but he is a Louisiana native.
The oldest-known living World War II veteran calls New Orleans home and was recently featured on 'CBS This Morning'. The story details how the 111-year-old took advantage of a birthday phone call from Governor Edwards in order to get his leaky-roof fixed.
