First Place: "Supercentenarian WWII Veteran"
Matthew Hinton | U.S. Army veteran Lawrence Brooks celebrates his 110th birthday, making him America’s oldest WWII veteran and a supercentenarian, at the National World War II Museum with the Victory Belles singing him ‘Happy Birthday’ in New Orleans, La. Thursday, Sept. 12, 2019. Brooks said the secret to a long life is to be nice to people. Brooks served in the Pacific Theater in New Guinea and the Philippines in the predominantly African-American 91st Engineer Battalion that helped make runways for planes. Brooks chuckled as he recounted how he was in a C-47 plane similar to the one hanging in the museum’s ceiling when the engine failed and only the pilot and co-pilot had parachutes. The Victory Belles are singers that recreate 1940s big band singing groups complete with 1940s hairstyles and fashion. Copyright: Matthew Hinton
