In a similar story, YEN.com.gh previously reported that World War II veteran, Cresencia Garcia, marked her 102 birthday with family and loved ones who honoured her service as a former medic with the Six Triple Eights.

Born on April 18, 1920, in Puerto Rico, her family immigrated to New York City in her youth. Like most Americans, she joined the US Army after Japan bombed Pearl Harbor.

When Garcia joined to serve in the army, segregation was still rife, so she was sent to Texas for basic training and placed into a segregated unit.
