After all, this man is one of the few surviving heroes of that war, and he deserves an outpouring of celebration!

…but James could never have predicted the response he got.

After putting a photo of himself on Facebook asking for the 100 cards, people started to respond.

And they just KEPT responding.

More than 60,000 birthday cards from all over the world have arrived for one special World War II veteran in North Texas who is turning a milestone birthday this week.

Wow!

James ended up with more than 600 times what he asked for!

He’s been getting cards from as far away as India and Australia, and the just keep coming.

The Facebook post he put up also went viral, ultimately raking in over 500 comments and 3,800 shares.
