SHREVEPORT, La. -

While most of the city celebrated Independence Day on the river front, one World War II vet put on his own party in the comfort of his own home.

Lieutenant Glenn Morgan Mason opened his home to friends, family and neighbors to savor the traditional hot dogs and soda in salute to our great nation. Lieutenant Mason celebrates the Fourth of July every year as if it were his first. The 97 year old sat on his porch on Thursday and told the tales of the old days of how our brothers and sisters fought to keep this country free.

"My finest day in the world is the Fourth of July" says Lt. Mason.

Lieutenant Mason served in the United States Navy.
