Good Friday is a good reason to celebrate for the family of one true, American hero.
91-year-old Jacob Leaman of Cairo blew out the birthday candles Friday at Worthington Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
Leaman is a World War II veteran.
His tour of duty took him from North Africa, to Sicily, to the famed Normandy landings and the Battle of the Bulge.
A survivor of America's greatest generation, after the war, the Army veteran worked 25 years building aircrafts in New York.
He's also a retired minister.
A few decades later, Leaman is still as sharp as an old soldier could be.
"Somebody asked me down there a while ago, 'what's it feel like to be 91?' I said, 'I've never been 91 before so I don't know'," he said.
Leaman enjoys his time with his wife of 68 years, Eleanor, right by his side.
She's also contributed to the war effort.
Eleanor was a nurse in Indiana, where the couple met after the war ended in 1945.
The leaman's have five children, 11 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
