On Tuesday, November 19, LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dogs Brutus (LCC Squad) and Nigel (LCC Staff) visited Dr. Marvin Cooper to help celebrate his 98th birthday. Dr. Cooper is a Veteran of World War II where he served as an M.D. in post-war Japan and Korea. After returning home, he began practicing as a pediatrician for 64 years. Dr. Cooper retired from actively practicing medicine at the age of 93. He and his wife have been married 68 years and have a loving family of over 100 members.
In addition to the birthday visit by the Kare 9s, Dr. Cooper welcomed a new great-grandchild into the family on his birthday. Dr. Cooper truly personifies why the men and women of World War II are called “the Greatest Generation.”
