The oldest living World War II veteran is having a birthday and his family wants you to help him celebrate.

Lawrence Brooks turns 111-years-old on September 12.

During the war, Brooks was stationed in the pacific as part of the 91st engineer battalion.

He now lives in New Orleans, but because of the pandemic, he will not get to have his usual birthday bash. So, Brooks' family and the National World War II Museum are asking people to send him a card or letter.

Those cards can be mailed directly to the museum at: 945 Magazine St, New Orleans, LA 70130.
