A Midwest community came together to give a World War II vet a birthday he'll never forget.
A police escort, vintage cars and fire trucks drove by Robert Mueller's home for his 100th birthday in Chester, Illinois.
And the celebrations didn't stop there.
"It's really exciting. The VFW had a big one last night and they got up and sang Happy Birthday to me," he says.
Mueller's advice -- to stay active and keep going. He says he's had multiple times in his life where things weren't going well, but a door always opened to something better.
