One Good Thing: Surprise birthday parade for World War II veteran in downtown Houston

A Houston World War II veteran was given a surprise birthday party.

HOUSTON – It was a sight to see in downtown Houston Sunday as people celebrated a World War II veteran.

Decorated cars, trucks and motorcycles made a loud entrance to help honor Vincent Grenfell, Sr., who turns 99 on July 4 this year.

This was a major milestone and one worth giving a major celebration for, so to help celebrate a little early, dozens of vehicles lined up and gave him an unforgettable surprise parade while singing “Happy Birthday.”

Vincent has been a resident at a home for homeless veterans for six years.
