WWII Vet gets special birthday wish granted

Local News

A special birthday wish has come true for a World War II veteran and Purple Heart recipient in California.

Duane Sherman recently turned 96, but he didn’t feel like celebrating. Many of his friends have died and his daughter says most of the mail he gets these days are bills.

About a month ago, Sherman’s daughter made a public request for people to drop a little something in the mail for her dad. And did the public ever respond!

Sherman has received about 50,000 birthday cards. They’re from all 50 states, as well as 10 other countries.
