Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is William Darwin.

William served as a Swim Instructor in the Navy during World War II. His most proud accomplishment is teaching young men how to survive in the water.

He currently works part-time at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

William recently turned 100-years-old and he attributes his longevity to eating healthy, laughing a lot and loving hard.

Thank you for your service, William!
