The video below is going viral on Twitter, which features 100 year-old military veteran Carl Spurlin Dekel, who breaks down in tears because he does not even recognize our country anymore. He says that this is not the country he and his fellow soldiers fought for.
"I've lived a good life. I've had a lot of love and happiness," he began during his interview with Fox 13. "It was an honor for me to serve my country and if I had to do it again and I was the same age. I would do it. I guarantee you."
"People don’t realize what they have," Dekel explained as his emotions took over. "The things we did and the things we fought for and the boys that died for it, it’s all gone down the drain."

"We haven’t got the country we had when I was raised, not at all," he said, with tears filling his eyes. "Nobody will have the fun I had. Nobody will have the opportunity I had. It’s just not the same and that’s not what our boys, that’s not what they died for."
"You just remember everything’s beautiful and live every day to the fullest. Just enjoy everything you possibly can," Dekel added moments later. "And here I sit at 100. They tell me I'm 100. I don't believe it sometimes. Because I don't need to worry about age. I'm not going to, I just keep on keeping on."
