‘This means everything to me’: WWII veteran celebrates 100th birthday

EUTAWVILLE, S.C. (WFMY) — Surrounded by loved ones, World War II veteran William James is celebrating his 100th birthday.

“Because he is the only living relative out of his brothers and sisters, he requested all of his nieces and nephews to come home for his birthday, and they are all going to be here,” James’ granddaughter Isha Warr said.

James says the secret to living to 100 is the love he gets from his large family, which includes 10 kids, 20 grandchildren, and 45 great-grandchildren.
