GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Guido Bagett celebrated his 102nd birthday on Monday. The WWII sniper celebrated the big day surrounded by his three kids and grand kids.

Bagett was married for more than 74 years, and served in Patton's third army division as a sniper.

He said now he spends his time gardening, and was even given a new tomato plant which he planted immediately.

When asked what was the most fun he had ever had Bagett didn't even hesitate.

"The last four days have been something else for me! I've got all my family together and enjoyed all of it," said Bagett.

He celebrated the day with a cake, balloons and a nearly 10 foot long card that had hundreds of signatures wishing him a 'Happy Birthday'.
