WWII veteran receives hundreds of birthday cards for his 103rd birthday

At nearly 103 years old, a World War II veteran is still going strong.
Ed Hendrickson is days away from his 103rd birthday and people from around the country are helping him celebrate.


One of Hendrickson’s fellow veterans put out a call online asking for birthday cards. And that call has been answered, as he has already received hundreds of well wishes ahead of his birthday.

“I never knew I had so many friends. It’s kind of exciting, truthfully,” Hendrickson said. “They’re all nice. They’re complimentary, wishing me well, and personal. I like that.”
And physical activity isn’t the only thing keeping his spirits high these days thanks to the birthday well wishes.
Ahead of Veterans Day and Hendrickson’s birthday on Nov. 14 the cards keep coming in, and he is grateful to everyone who has dropped him a note so far
