Family organizes birthday parade for WWII veteran.

The coronavirus has been hard for retired Lieutenant Colonel Mel Hays and his family in Portland, the US. But, he got to see all of those who loved him for his 98th birthday.

His family and friends held a car parade just for him!

Barbara Johnson said her dad is a fighter. He was in the air force during World War II, and crashed his plane on a small island near Croatia, komonews.com reported.

He survived that crash, and now he’s fighting to survive this pandemic.

“My dad has been locked in his room for the months. Very depressed and sad,” said Barbara. “He's a party guy. He loves big parties. So I think this will blow him away.”
