Parade honors 93-year-old World War II vet from Pawtucket

A World War II veteran from Pawtucket got a hero’s birthday celebration over the weekend.

George from Pawtucket celebrated his 93rd birthday in style with a parade.

He served in the Navy during World War II on the USS Liguria. George is the last surviving member of that ship.

His daughter, Suzan Brito, said she organized the parade for her dad and calls him her hero. She said she nearly lost him a couple weeks ago.

“He’s my teacher. He’s my best friend. He’s everything,” Brito said.

As you can see, he was surrounded by family and friends and even a beer in hand for his special day.
