Loren Wade of Winfield, Kansas retired when he was in his 60s. But he got bored, so he went to work at his local Walmart. That was in 1983. He's still there. Now at the age of 103, Wade works as a store greeter, as well as waters the plants and works a cash register. He has no plans to retire because he likes to stay busy.

To mark Wade's 103rd birthday, Walmart threw a big party for him. Former Senator Bob Dole, 92, called him at the party, saying that he hoped to "catch up" with Wade someday. Walmart honored Wade and his service in the Army Air Forces by donating $125,000 to the Friends of the National World War II Memorial.
