WWII US Navy Veteran Harold E. Carter turned 98 years-old on February 11th. The United States Navy Memorial contacted the California VFW and requested veterans do a drive-by birthday salute to this WWII Veteran.

Dana Point Post 9934 and Mission Viejo Post 6024 worked together to make this an occasion to remember. The Sheriff's office joined the parade, and Orange County Fire Authority participated, along with the California Highway Patrol.

The weather was good, and everyone washed up the cars for the Thursday Feb. 11th at 1 PM. drive-by salute, according to those present. The event was in Cota de Caza, near Rancho Santa Margarita. All gathered at the Pavilions shopping center to give this Veteran a good showing. VFW District 2 presented Harold with a VFW State Certificate.
