LEWITOWN, Pa. (WHTM) — A Mid-State veteran had a very special birthday on Thursday. She’s pretty special in her own right.
Ada Kuhn of Lewistown, Mifflin County received a birthday wish from the county commissioner who declared Thursday Ada Kuhn Day.
Born on October 20, 1919, Kuhn is 103 years old.
Ada says she was one of the few women in the military at the time and was surprised by the changes since then.
“It’s very important because there are so many things women can do in the service. It wasn’t a lot back then. Now it’s an everyday occurrence. I’ve always been proud to have served my county and I would recommend it to any girl.
She believes the secret to longevity is staying active.
Kuhn played basketball and baseball, and went skiing during his deployments in Europe.
