The American Legion in Blue Earth, Minnesota welcomes its newest member, but get this, the World War Two Veteran is 102 years old.
Originally from Renville, LeaVerne Hanson is a World War Two veteran.
"I just liked the Navy that's all,” said Hanson.
And now, he's a member of the Blue Earth American Legion at the ripe young age of 102.
"As far as I know, he is one of the oldest, newest members to join the American Legion," said Gene Olswold.
And with more than two million members nationwide, it's no small feat for an organization that is not even 100 years old itself.
"Well it's a patriotic duty," said Hanson.
A duty that was brought to fruition after his nieces decided to move him to Blue Earth to help take care of their uncle who was never married and lived alone in a cabin up north.
And in case you were wondering the secret to living for more than a century?
“Beats the heck out of me. One of life's mysteries,” said Hanson.
