A man who is believed to be the last surviving Tuskegee Airman in Rhode Island is preparing to celebrate a major milestone.
Retired Sgt. Victor W. Butler, of Cranston, is turning 100 on May 21 and he hopes the public will send him birthday cards to enjoy on the special day.
As Butler awaits his birthday cards, he plans to keep assembling puzzles and sharing his wisdom.
“Just enjoy life as it is. Be thankful,” Butler said. “I’m thankful that I have a nice wife, and a nice home to live in.”
Butler says he plans to read every card that is sent his way.
If you would like to send a birthday card, you can mail it to the following address:
