ANNAPOLIS, Md. — This holiday season, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan says he's thankful for our veterans.
On Wednesday Hogan revealed some advice he received during a virtual conversation with World War II veteran, Ezra Hill.
At 109-years-old, Hill is the oldest living veteran in Maryland and second oldest in the entire United States.
So when the Governor asked what his secret was to living a long life, Hill replied with two simple phrases, “Don’t hate nobody" and “It’s cool, keep calm."
Hill is a 1931 graduate of Frederick Douglass High School. He joined the Army and landed at Normandy shortly after D-Day.
He will turn 110 in December.
Watch the meeting between Hill and the Governor below.
