Texas veteran asks for 100 cards for his birthday

A Texas veteran is asking for 100 cards for his birthday. The World War II veteran will be turning 100 years old on Saturday, March 2, 2019, according to a Facebook post. 

The picture of 99-year-old Joe Cuba holding the cardboard sign asking for birthday cards was shared in a Facebook post on Tuesday, February 19 by Stephanie Veitenheimer. Since then, it has been shared at least 2,000 times. 

After the Facebook post received a viral amount of attention online, Veitenheimer updated the caption of the Facebook post. It read, in part, " It has been a great day, thanks for sharing to the WORLD!!! We can't wait to see all the cards he will get. Went and updated to a HUGE box."
