Happy 105th, Major White! Ooohrah!
“Feels just as good as it did at 104!”
On July 31, 2020, the town of Stockton, California held a drive-by birthday celebration for a distinguished resident of The Oaks at Inglewood assisted living facility. A parade of local residents and first responders turned out to greet Marine Maj. Bill White a very happy 105th birthday.
“Feels just as good as it did at 104,” Maj. White said. The outpouring of fanfare and support were a testament to Maj. White’s positive spirit and service to the nation. For his family members, who haven’t been able to visit him much because of the coronavirus pandemic, the celebration was a touching display.
“It’s very heartwarming and very just — it does get to you that there are so many people that love him and appreciate him for his service,” said Maj. White’s daughter Mary Huston.
