"We absolutely love Mr. Brooks," museum vice president Peter Crean told the Times-Picayune. "We've told him, 'As long as you keep having birthdays, we are going to keep having birthday parties for you here."
The museum’s vocal trio, the Victory Belles, entertained Brooks and planted some kisses on the smiling Army veteran.
Brooks is considered the oldest living American of World War II since 112-year-old Richard Overton of Austin, Texas, died Dec. 27, 2018.
The oldest living World War II veteran is believed to be 113-year-old Gustav Gerneth of Germany, the Times-Picayune reported.
