Governor's Office Honors Nevada's Oldest Living Veteran

Posted: Updated:

Last week officials paid tribute to Nevada's oldest living veteran.

On Friday a representative from Governor Brian Sandoval's office gave Ivan Woodford a proclamation declaring him Nevada's oldest living veteran.

The 103-year-old joined the Navy in 1942 and saw service at Pearl Harbor, Midway Island and the Philippines during WWII.

After serving in WWII, Woodford moved to northern Nevada and helped build part of Interstate 80.

Woodward served as Deputy Grand Marshal for this year's Veterans Day Parade in downtown Reno.
