A World War II veteran and his wife celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary over the weekend.
William and Marcedes Parsons of Reno, Nevada married three days after meeting in 1943 and have been together ever since. Shortly after their wedding, William was shipped off to Pearl Harbor.
The Parsons are the proud parents of four children, six grand children and four *great-grand children. William says that there is no formula for staying married that long, but is pretty thankful for the opportunity.
