Elkhart native celebrates 100th birthday

Elkhart, Ind. Not many people live for an entire century, but one local world war two veteran has.

Elkhart native, Leslie Mast, celebrated his 100th birthday Saturday afternoon with friends and family.

When asked what he wanted to do for his birthday, he said he wanted to cut some wood illustrating an old past-time memory in his life.

Congresswoman Jackie Walorski sent a representative to honor his great achievement and awarded him a certificate and a prestigious, metal coin.
