108-Year-Old Montgomery County World War II Vet Visits White House for Breakfast

A 108-year-old World War II veteran from the Philadelphia suburbs attended the yearly Veterans Day breakfast at the White House.

Bill Mohr was an army sergeant with the 45th Infantry Division. His daughter says the Hatboro man participated in Operation Dragoon in France and marched into Germany to liberate the Dachau concentration camp.

The Montgomery County native worked as a lathe operator in Warminster until he was 93 when a fall injured his shoulder.

Members of American Legion Post No. 255 of Sellersville honored Mohr with a military send-off and motorcade as he departed for the nation's capital on Thursday.

Mohr planned to visit the World War II Memorial, escorted by local veterans.
