COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A Colorado Springs combat veteran who turned 100 years old on Veterans Day was honored Tuesday in a special birthday celebration.
Nov. 11, 1919 was the very first Armistice Day, and it’s also the day Master Sgt. Albert C. Mosley was born.
“I never thought I could make it to 100,” Mosely said.
Destined to fight for peace, Mosely fought in World War II and the Korean War.
“20 years, five months, and six days, I think it’s something like that, in the Army,” Mosely said.
After decades of sacrifice for the country he loves and a century of giving, this special day was all about receiving warm birthday wishes.
“It’s a great, great, great feeling, and to see all of these people here, I cannot believe that many people knew me,” Mosely said.
