She's been alive for a century now, but please, do not call Loreta Suarez old.
Loreta Suarez is a United States Marine Veteran who turned 100 onFirday, but for her, its more like 100 years young.
Suarez, who began her marine service in 1930, lives on her own and is still driving.
She says there is no secret to her life span, other than simple health decisions.
"I have good genes. My parents both were old, I grew up on a farm, had good food all my life and a lot of exercise. So there's no one key" Said Suarez.
She also added that getting old isn't easy, but friends and family make it all worthwhile.
