WATAUGA, Texas (CNN) — A Texas World War II veteran is asking people to help him celebrate his birthday.

Jim South turns 100 years old on Oct. 7 and his birthday wish is to receive 100 cards. His senior living home in Watauga, Texas (north Tarrant County) posted a picture of South on Facebook with a sign asking for the cards.

South joined the United States Army in 1940 and was deployed to Normandy, France seven days after D-Day.

He already has plans for his birthday cards. He says he’s going to hang them in his room.

If you want to send South a special birthday message, you can send cards to:
