The oldest living veteran paid a special visit to the White House this week.
Emma Didlake is 110 years old. The Detroit resident enlisted in the women's Army Auxillery Corpse in 1943 in WWII. At that time she 38, married and already had five children!
President Obama said it was a great honor to meet her.
"It's a great reminder of not only the sacrifices the greatest generation made on our behalf but also the kind of trailblazing that our women veterans made."
After she was discharged, Didlake moved with her family to Detroit and joined the local NAACP chapter.
Didlake now has eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. She says she's healthy because she lives in moderation and doesn't smoke.
