SCRANTON, Pa. — A very special birthday celebration was held Tuesday in Scranton for a 103-year-old World War II veteran.

Morris Kashuba is a resident at the Gino Merli Veterans Center in Scranton, and the staff surprised him with a party Tuesday afternoon.

Kashuba served with the U.S. Army from 1942 to 1946 and earned 3 Bronze Stars.
