Their hope this Christmas is that he will realize he’s not forgotten. Alvin River is know as Bob to most and the World War II veteran will turn 100-years-old on Christmas Day. Since April Bob has been living at the Truman VA Hospital but his family is asking for help to celebrate his birthday this year. Because of COVID restrictions his family hasn’t been able to see him since October so they would love for anyone to send him a birthday greeting!
