Community Surprises WWII Veteran for His Birthday (WATCH)

( – The last week has left the country in turmoil. Americans are still not sure who their next president is and many of us are looking for a way to take our minds off of the political upheaval. Residents of Cincinnati, Ohio, didn’t let that stop them from celebrating the life of a hero.

On November 7, the community came together and threw a surprise 96th birthday party for Command Sgt. Major Henry Armstrong. A parade was held in honor of the World War II veteran where residents thanked him for his service and wished him a happy day. The event included police cars, an ambulance, and a lot of screaming fans.

Armstrong had a long military career in the US Army; he served from 1943 to 1984 and helped liberate a concentration camp in Austria called Gunskirchen Lager. He’s met three of the men he freed from the Nazi camps.

Command Sgt. Major Henry Armstrong is a true American hero. Join us in wishing him a happy belated birthday.
