Brandon Riddle (South Coast Shingle) surprises WWII vet with car parade
LAKEWOOD, Calif. – It’s a birthday he might never forget.
Sam Sachs’ senior living home in Lakewood was planning a 105th birthday celebration for him, but due to the coronavirus the party was cancelled.
So Lakewood Mayor Todd Rogers went to social media asking people to send in birthday cards for Sachs.
But Sachs, a World War II vet, got something even bigger… a parade!
The Sultans Car Club of Long Beach surprised him with a special vintage car parade outside his senior living home.
“We didn’t do cards, but we were able to deliver CARS for his birthday! He’s a WW2 vet and it is his 105th birthday,” Brandon Riddle with Sultans Car Club told FOX 11.
