World War II vet says he feels ‘great’ on his 101st birthday: ‘Life can be beautiful’

NEWYORK (WPIX) – Lenny Landau was born in Roaring’s 20s, and he’s still kicking it into the 2020s.

“I feel great,” the World War II veteran told WPIX on his 101st birthday. “Life can be beautiful. Go one day at a time.”

In 1920, Prohibition began and women gained the right to vote – and Landau came out into the world.

“It was a tough time to be born,” he said. “It was a crazy time.”

Landau works out every day at his New Jersey home, and he even works at a container company for the job “to keep you young,” he says.

He also stresses that “you have to have a positive attitude.”

“You have to put a smile on your face and enjoy everything that you are doing,” he said.

He told WPIX he hasn’t been sick since serving in World War Two. He credits a flu shot he received back then as his continued health – but other factors, including his wife, also helped.

Landau Sydelle’s wife is 25 years younger than him.

“There’s no point in marrying someone 25 years younger than him, but he’s a happy man,” she said. And he enjoys every day. ”

Landau celebrates his big day with friends and family. He said living a long life is a feat and shared the secret to staying young and living a long life: “I have a young wife, I have young friends and I have a life motto. [that] says ‘you should do one good deed, one anonymous deed every day of your life.’
