Lawrence Brooks' 110th Birthday Party

The National WWII Museum hosted Lawrence Brooks and his family again to celebrate his birthday. I personally love celebrating this man’s birthday. It was the first event I was a part of when I first started working at the Museum two years ago. I’ll never forget it, and it will always hold a special place in my heart. The Museum itself is so awe inspiring, but this event brought that feeling to a whole new level. I remember thinking to myself back then how awesome it is that’s he’s been through so much and is still going strong. It’s no different now.

I was asked to help take some photos of the event, and I of course I was all over that. The event was really nice. They showed some of his Oral History, presented him with gifts, and praised the long, amazing life he’s lived. His birthday ended with cupcakes for everyone! It was a successful birthday once again!

There were several media outlets taking photos and videos, and I made a cameo in a couple of the videos!
