If you’re lucky enough to make it to 100, you should get what you want for your birthday and one World War II veteran has a simple wish for his: to get 100 birthday cards. Joe Cuba’s photo has gone viral after the image of him holding a sign with the request was shared.
Joe’s sign reads: “I’m a WWII veteran who will be turning 100 on March 2, 2019. I would like to receive 100 birthday cards.”
After 100 years on Earth, the vet says he’s thankful for his health and he’s also happy to share the words of wisdom he lives by. “Just keep on trucking. When you like to do something, do it,” Joe says. “Stay with something and you’ll get ahead. You’ll be okay.”
