Saturday marked a major milestone for one Stockton man. As one of the longest-living veterans of World War II, Maj. William White celebrated his 106th birthday with a parade down the street he calls home. “I can’t think of enough words to express my thanks,” said Maj. White, staring at the many cars full of people passing by celebrating his birthday. The highly decorated veteran was entertaining others at his celebration by telling stories of his experiences in combat. See more in the video above.
