Members of an Oklahoma police department assisted an elderly military veteran celebrate his birthday earlier this week.

It wasn’t just any birthday for Raymond Duncan, either. The former serviceman was celebrating his 100th birthday, according to Fox News.

Oklahoma City Police Officers gathered Duncan as he shared stories of his military career and life. The police department also wished him a happy birthday on their social media pages on Monday.

“A special 100th birthday wish to Raymond Duncan,” the Facebook post says. “A few of our Hefner Department officers were able to stop by his birthday celebration and enjoy hearing stories about Mr. Duncan’s impressive military career. Mr. Duncan said he was proud to have Oklahoma City Police Department officers to come celebrate his birthday. Our officers were proud to be a part of a celebration for this wonderful man!”

The post also contains a picture of three officers posing with Duncan in the center. Duncan also appears to have a card from the department in his hands. Conversely, each of the three officers are wearing COVID-19 protective masks.
