Wichita Falls is home to one very special WWII veteran who is celebrating a special birthday this Memorial Day weekend.

Friends and loved ones gathered with veteran Max Donnely to celebrate his 90th birthday earlier this afternoon.

And this war hero was very happy with the turnout at his celebration.

"Well I wanted to thank all these people for showing up. I never thought there would be a crowd like this for me but i'm gonna take it. 

Donnely has lived in Wichita Falls since 1928 and says this will always be home.
