A Tri-State Veteran is celebrating her milestone birthday.

Mildred Bruner, also known as "Granny B," is celebrating her 100th birthday.

Although her birthday was April 7th, her family hosted a birthday party Saturday at First Christian Church in Evansville.

At the age of 22, Mildred joined the Army Air Corp during World War Two stationed as a nurse in Mississippi.

"I don't think I'm going to change anything," says Bruner. "Just going to do the things I've been doing. Just enjoying life. Well, you know really I don't feel any different than I did when I was 99."

The centenarian received an unexpected honor earlier in the month as U.S. Congressman Larry Bucshon made a trip to present Mildred with an American Flag that has flown over the Capitol.

After what was our coldest start today since January 8th, temperatures only climbed as high as 25° in Evansville earlier today, marking our coolest afternoon in just under two weeks. The evening ahead will be equally bone-chilling; after seeing temperatures around 21° at dinnertime we'll tumble back down to 19° by 10 o’clock under gradually decreasing cloud cover. The combination of clear skies and northerly winds will allow temperatures to fall all the way back down to 15° in Evansville early Friday morning. Worse yet, windchill values are expected to dive right back down into the single digits area-wide.
