Send a birthday card to 101-year-old WWII veteran in assisted living facility

February 24, 2021 @ 8:00 am - February 26, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

COVID-19 will prevent World War II veteran James McPherson, from seeing his family on his 101st birthday on February 26, 2021.

Mr. McPherson lives in an assisted living facility, and his caretaker is asking everyone to make this birthday a special one by sending him a birthday card.

McPherson, who served in the Army, drove a bulldozer in Italy during World War II, making roads for the tanks to drive on.

If you’d like to send Mr. McPherson a birthday card, you can send it to
