CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Friday was a big day for local World War II veteran James "JR" Fields. Family and friends helped him celebrate his 102nd birthday.

A drive-thru parade was held over at the Solstice Senior Living Center.

We asked Mr. Fields what the key to his longevity was, and he told us "don't smoke, don't drink, and don't cuss."
