1BILL WHITE

A SHOUT-OUT TO THE OLDEST LIVING MARINE VETERAN!

Major Bill White is 104 years young and the oldest living U.S. Marine and “was enlisted and crossed the equator on board the USS Colorado in 1936 as a ‘shellback.’ He was stationed at Pearl Harbor from 1936 to 1937 before being transferred to the 4th Marine Regiment in Shanghai.”

Major White is also a hero of the Battle of Iwo Jima during World War II and a veteran of the Korean War, with 30 years in the Corps!

Just over the past few days Major White has been featured online regarding his “Valentine’s Day Campaign” to receive greetings and cards from well-wishers for Valentine’s Day. These stories can be found online and he has in fact received over 300,000 cards from people all over the world for his holiday effort.

Major White is still going strong and is ready to even re-up if needed! So, Semper Fi to you, Marine, and happy Valentine’s Day! We salute you. 🇺🇸️💖🇺🇸️
