Letting the coronavirus stop his celebration.

Adrienne moore reports.

I think "nats of parade" at 105 -- he is the oldest living marine.

So... how's he feel about it?

"major bill's" positive spirit-- just one of many reasons there's so much love and fanfare -- outside his stockton assisted living facility.

Recovered from that.

Spent a total of 30 years in the marine corps.

Just an amazing guy."

For his family members-- who haven't been able to visit much because of coronavirus -- this celebration... is nothing short of remarkable.

In what eventually became known as "operation valentine's day" -- he brought in more than half-a- million cards and gifts from around the world -- including a special note from nasa and president trump.
