On Saturday, 24 Feb, Francis Ockenfels, achieved a significant milestone in his life - he celebrated his 102nd birthday. Being that he served in the U.S. Army in the Pacific Theater during WWII, this event makes Francis one of our country's oldest living veterans.
Several of our Post 108 members, including past Prescott Valley Mayor Carm Staker, and Town Councilman, Marty Grossman, attended a celebration party for Francis at the Glassford Place Long Term Care facility on the 24th, where he proudly resides. Aside from being a bit stiff in the joints and a bit hard of hearing, he is mentally alert and is in remarkable health for his age. Francis was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation from the Town of Prescott Valley by Marty Grossman.
Many thanks to all who turned out to make this a very special day indeed for Francis!
