MARLOW, Ok. (WIBW) — A World War II veteran from Marlow, Oklahoma is turning 93 on April 17th and his family is trying to get cards sent to him for his birthday as a surprise.
Daughter Liz Anderson tells CBS affiliate WIBW her dad Recil Troxel loves getting any kind of mail, and is obsessed with checking the mailbox.
“He sits here in his chair looking out the window every day,” Anderson said. “When the mail is here, he’s like the mail is here, we better go get the mail.”
I’ll be picking up a couple of cards.
You have until early April to send his card. April 17 is his birthday.
Let’s make an old man (and a WWII veteran) happy.
