WWII veteran James South wanted 100 birthday cards sent to his Texas retirement community to celebrate his 100th birthday. 

He got 60,000 and counting. 

After his post soliciting cards on the Brookdale Watuga Facebook page went viral, cards poured in from around the world including some from as far away as Australia and India, according to NBCDFW.

His 100th birthday is Oct. 7 and the Brookdale Watuga facility is throwing him a party.
