LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- 102 years and counting -- World War II veteran Alfred Reid celebrated his birthday on Thursday.

There was a big party for him at a cardio rehab location where he exercises.  His family came out to celebrate, but Reid says his birthday is no big deal.

"Just like a normal ordinary day," he said, "don't feel any different.  Of course I'm glad I'm still around here, just same old thing as every other day."

Reid jokes about how his family members are always having babies.  He estimates he has 20 to 30 grandchildren.

Reid lives on his own and says he plans to celebrate his birthday tonight with his daughter at her house.
