WWII Vet from Montrose Asking for Cards for 100th Birthday – The Good News [VIDEO]
He said he's had a good life in Michigan, and now he wants 100 birthday cards to hang in his nursing home.
Ike Fabela told WNEM TV 5 News that he doesn't feel "any different" than he did 50 years ago. He served in the Army in World War II from 1944-1946. When he got back, he moved to Saginaw and then to Flint, got married and raised three children. He supported his family by working for GM and Buick until he retired.
And now, he has a simple request - he wants 100 birthday cards to hang in his nursing home. He says that he feels "thankful" that people he doesn't know are wishing him a Happy Birthday. He's already gotten a few dozen cards from all over the country.
He'll be celebrating his birthday on June 9th at Montrose Pub. If you want to send him a card, here's the address:
C/O Nick Rodgers
PO Box 3112 Montrose, MI 48457
