We are saluting the men and women who served our country.

On March 2, we're saluting Army Air Corps veteran Earl Geis.

Sgt. Geis started from small beginnings, growing up on a farm in Rocky, Oklahoma.

He was drafted at 23, skipped basic training and jumped right into air mechanic school.

He served as an air mechanic specialist during World War II, and served in Normandy on D-Day fixing up the first airstrip.

Today, Earl is 103 years old, living in OKC, and has plenty more stories to tell.

Thank you, Earl, for your service.
