Maj. Bill White,
A 104-year-old World War II veteran.
Maj. Bill White in California is asking people from all over the world to send him a card this Valentine’s Day.

White enlisted with the Marine Corps in 1934 and crossed the equator on board the USS Colorado in 1936 as a “shellback," according to the Facebook page.
He was stationed at Pearl Harbor from 1936 to 1937 before being transferred to the 4th Marine Regiment in Shanghai.


When WWII started in 1942, White was assigned to Parachute School and was transferred to the 4th Parachute Battalion in Bougainville. When the paratroopers were recalled from the Pacific in 1943, he went to the Parker Ranch in Hawaii to prep for the invasion of Iwo Jima.

Soon they will all be gone. But what they did to protect this country and fight for those who could not fight for themselves should never be forgotten
They do not teach the young about guys like this anymore, so it is up to y’all.
