PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- Dan Moracarco, a World War II Air Force veteran, recently celebrated his 98th birthday at Community Home Health Care in Peekskill.

“We wanted to celebrate this big occasion with Dan, so we decided to bring the party to him," said Brenda Schwartz, director of public relations for Community Home Health Care.

Moracarco was born Feb. 28, 1918, in the Bronx and was stationed with the 8th Division in England from 1942-45. He achieved the rank of drill sergeant and worked in the Garment District for over 40 years after returning to the United States.

Moracarco currently resides at Drum Hill Senior Living Center with wife, Marie, whom he married in 1958.
