WATCH: 100-Year-Old WWII Veteran Receives Incredible Birthday Card…Grab the Tissues

Published

The day we stop honoring our veterans is the day we lose sight of the cost of liberty. And as long as we still have living WWII veterans, it is of the utmost importance that we honor them as members of the Greatest Generation and victors in the globe’s most devastating and important war thus far.

Issac “Ike” Fabela recently turned 100, and to mark the occasion all he wanted was 100 birthday cards.

Word got out, however, and he ended up with tens of thousands. Even actor Chris Pratt–who regularly gives us more reasons to love him–got in on the action:

Among the 50,000 cards his daughter said he received, however, was a very special card…from the President himself.

Fabela, who served in World War II from 1944 to 1946, was brought to tears by many of the cards he received, according to one of his daughters, which he has spent quite a bit of time reading.

“He can’t believe what some of these people have written,” daughter Lolie told Fox News.

When Fabela read the birthday card from the White House, however, Lolie managed to capture it on camera. As he read the incredibly powerful words from POTUS, who recognized just how important the century Fabela has lived means to our nation’s history, the elderly man is clearly moved.

I dare you not to cry:

WATCH: Yet Another ‘Jet Pack Man’ Sighting Baffles LAX Air Controllers

He’s back!

Is he some sort of modern-day Iron Man?  Or is he a super-villain who’s simply working to perfect his unique mode of transport? In fact, is it a he at all?  Perhaps the “jet pack man” is actually a “jet pack gal”.  Or maybe even an elaborate drone? In any case, something that appears to be a man wearing a high-powered jet pack, has been haunting air traffic controllers over LAX in Los Angeles for months now, and his latest appearance was caught on camera. “Use caution, the jet man is back,” an air traffic controller at Los Angeles International Airport warned pilots in a recording obtained by CNN after a possible appearance of the mysterious figure first sighted near the airport last fall. The FAA says the pilot of a cargo Boeing 747 reported “an object that might have resembled a jet pack” near its right wing at around 5,000 feet Wednesday evening, reports NBC Los Angeles. The possible sighting was around 15 miles from the airport, though the FAA says no unusual objects appeared on radar around LAX at the time. Images of the sighting we soon circulating on social media. https://twitter.com/Patharveynews/status/1420616136282972162?s=20 https://youtu.be/NXj0LaYTtvI The mysterious aviator began appearing months ago, and has been captured on camera previously. https://twitter.com/BizColombo/status/1342432064277151745?s=20 Authorities appear to be stumped over the identity and motivation of the daredevil.

WATCH: Tiny Pup Protects 12 Year-Old Owner from Vicious Wild Animal

GOOD DOG!

There are times in every dog owner’s life in which man looks down at beast and wonders just how peculiar and unique this relationship really is. There are no companion animals more attuned to the human existence than our dogs.  (I’m sorry, horse-owners, but y’all come in a close second). These are members of the family who feel a duty and nobility about doing the dirty, animalistic work of the group…no matter the size. In Toronto this week, a young girl and her small dog made big news. An incredibly brave little Yorkie defended its owner, a 10-year-old girl, from a coyote that attacked the pair while out for a neighborhood walk in Toronto this week. The Yorkshire terrier, who the family rescued six years ago, suffered “extremely serious tissue injuries to her spine and her leg,” Dorothy Kwan, 10-year-old Lily Kwan’s mother, wrote on a crowdfunding page to raise money for the veterinarian bills. “You can see our dog putting herself between my daughter and the coyote,” Dorothy Kwan wrote. “Even after she was seriously injured, she continued to bark and chase the coyote away. She fought back.” The entire scene was captured on video: https://youtu.be/qTqXqoqMSWM The underdog yorkie did spend some time in a canine ICU, but returned home after a few days with 40 stitches and one heck of a story.
