95-year-old WWII veteran recovers from Coronavirus in the U.S.

Bill Kelly is a man who survived the Great Depression. He even served in the South Pacific during World War II. Today, the 95-year-old has recovered from COVID-19.

Generations of his family are elated. Its an inspiring story from the continually depressing ones we hear on a daily basis. How did he do it?

Bill explains, “My theory is when you’re born, what’s going on in the world, you deal with it. That’s what’s happened here in my life … you do what you’re told and you get right through it.”

Bill, who lives with his granddaughter Rose Etherington, 41, his grandson-in-law Isaac Etherington, 42, his daughter Susan Nelson, 65, and his two great-grandsons, Paxton, 5, and Chaston, 11 months, recently completed a two-week quarantine in Oregon.
