Oldest Known Living U.S. Veteran Dies at 110 Years Old [VIDEO]
ABC News tells us Didlake lived an amazing life:
One of 15 children, Didlake was born in Boligee, Alabama in 1905 and later moved to Lynch, Kentucky with her family. She married in 1922 and had five children. In 1943, she took a barrier-breaking step –- joining the Army, at a time most women stayed at home, and defying widespread racism and segregation.
Didlake traveled around the world and was decorated for her service. Her decorations include the Women's Army Corps Service Medal, American Campaign Medal, and World War II Victory Medal.
What's her secret to a long life? Didlake says she ate a lot of fruits and vegetables and a limited amount of meat. Plus, each night she soaked nine golden raisins in a pint of gin and lets them sit overnight, eating then the next afternoon.
I'm not willing to give that a try, but feel free if gin and raisins are up your alley.
Here's video of Didlake's recent visit to the White House.
