WWII Veterans Celebrate Her 100th Birthday with One Wish

BALTIMORE (WBFF)– Millie Bailey grew up in the Deep South. During World War II she joined the Army. She ended up the Commander of a women’s unit. Now she lives in a Senior Apartment complex in Columbia, Howard County. It’s been a memorable journey for this accomplished Senior Citizen.

Millie explained, “I haven’t had a paying job since 1975, but my young friends say I shouldn’t say I’m retired, just say I work without pay.”

She has volunteered in different capacities during the past few decades. She has worked with children in Howard County Schools. She has packed care packages for soldiers overseas. She has been on advisory boards from police to education.

She remembers the impact segregation and discrimination had on her life and hopes the next generations are better human beings.

Her dream is for true equality, “I would like for everybody to see what they can do to help somebody else, like when you go to buy groceries buy some extra cans and bring it to the food bank. Yes, live every day thinking what can I do to make it a better world”.

Millie was recognized Monday Night by the Howard County Council, for her volunteer efforts, as she celebrated her 100th birthday.
