NEW ORLEANS — The nation's oldest World War II veteran is a little older.
Lawrence Brooks is turning 111.
The National World War II Museum says he got a serenade, aerobatics and a military flyover for his birthday.
He watched from his porch in New Orleans.
Brooks also got about 10,000 birthday cards thanks to a public campaign.
Brooks was part of a predominately African-American battalion during the war.
The museum says his rank was private first class.
