    A 95-year-old veteran who lived through the Great Depression and World War II just beat the coronavirus.

    Bill Kelly of Oregon, already facing underlying medical conditions, including kidney disease, a congenital heart condition and high blood pressure, is recovering at home these days.

    “Grandpa Bill’s pretty hardcore,” his granddaughter, Rose Ayers-Etherington, 41, told the newspaper.

    I survived the foxholes of Guam, I can get through this [coronavirus] bullsh*t.
    There comes a time in every man’s life when he is called upon to do something very special for which he and he alone has the capabilities, has the skills, and has the necessary training. What a pity if the moment finds the man unprepared. —Winston Churchill
