Man, 108, Marks Birthday With Dancing

AVENTURA, Fla., Nov. 9 (UPI) — A World War II veteran who celebrated his 108th birthday recently in Florida said the secret to his longevity is “wine, women and song.”

Louis Stein, who celebrated his birthday Tuesday with spicy chicken wings, cake and dancing, described himself as a “lover of life” who keeps going due to his fondness for “wine, women and song,” The Miami Herald reported Wednesday.

“It feels pretty good to be 108,” Stein said.

Stein joined the Army as an oral surgeon at the age of 38 when the United States entered World War II. He was discharged from the military after a 27-year career and continued practicing oral surgery for many years.

Stein, who has stayed active in veterans’ groups and was given the honor of ringing the bell of North Miami’s newly installed Veterans Tower three years ago, moved from Bradenton to Aventura, in the south part of the state, in 2004.
