On January 20, Jack Becker turned a century old . A World War II and Korean War Vet, Becker was celebrating his birthday with his family at a local country club. The Vet had been sitting comfortably, but when he heard music playing, Becker knew he could not just sit still. When the speakers started playing “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee-Gees, Becker got jiggy with it, looking magnificently spry for a 100-year-old!
