A 98 year old WWII veteran who works as a bag boy gets a special birthday


This 98-year-old World War Two veteran shows up two days a week for four hours a day to bag groceries at a New Jersey supermarket, and was given a surprise birthday celebration this week by his co-workers and favorite shoppers. "Bennie" Ficeto, who's worked at the Stop and Shop in Edison for 10 years, was thrown a red, white and blue-themed party on August 20th for his 98th birthday that featured balloons, treats and the USO singing some of his favorite songs. He said, "I think it’s pretty nice thing. I never expected anything like this." Ficeto doesn't have any plans to slow down yet, saying he's hoping to keep working at the store at least until he's 100.
