For his 100th birthday on June 6 -- which comes 74 years after he was miraculously pulled off a Normandy-bound boat on D-Day -- Michigan WWII veteran Isaac "Ike" Fabela has just one wish, his family said.
Fabela will be anxiously checking his mail, as the happy and humble vet hopes to rack up 100 birthday cards from well-wishers across the country.

Reminds me of the facebook posts I sometimes get. I never respond.
If this is for real, the man came to the right place. Let’s check it out and get going, FReepers!
My boss back in the mid-80s served on a Navy destroyer in support of the D-Day landing.
He’s 96 years old, lives in a condo in Naples, Florida and golfs 9 holes twice a week. He also has a girlfriend...
Lolie said her father is so excited for his birthday, adding that the majority of Montrose will take part in various planned celebrations.
He is a very humble man and says that he’s never done anything to deserve all this,” she said. But he has.
If you would like to send Ike a birthday card, you can mail it to:
C/O Nick Rodgers
PO Box 3112 Montrose, MI 48457
once this goes viral, I suspect he will get many MORE than 100... :)
I will definitely send him one. I hope he gets THOUSANDS!
His Birthday on June 6th. Im in!!
Same here. I’m sending him a card ASAP.
I regret mine is the day before and in 1971.
My spouse is big on this sort of thing, I will let her know.
Card in the mail!
“For his 100th birthday on June 6 — which comes 74 years after he was miraculously pulled off a Normandy-bound boat on D-Day — ”
My Michigan resident Father was on that Normandy-bound boat on D-Day, but didn’t get off until the gate lowered and he stepped on Omaha beach under heavy machine-gun fire.
Sent. I hope he gets a million cards.
“I am sending a card out tomorrow. This veteran better rent a storage locker. He will probably get hundreds of thousands and a call from the President! “
A call from the President would be really great!!
I hope someone lets him know :)
