    From her rocking chair in Annandale, Virginia Cornie McGrath reflects on her 104 years.

    McGrath: “Just good genes I guess.”

    During World War II, she worked at the Red River Ordnance Depot in Texas.

    McGrath: “Loading bombs onto diesels.”

    She rose through the ranks to become an Officer. After the war ended, she was sent to Europe, assigned to Grisham Ordnance Depot near Frankfurt.

    McGrath: “Very dirty and greasy.”

    Parker: “What do you think about being 104?”

    McGrath: “Oh everybody tells me that ‘oh you look soo great, you look great!’. I don’t feel as well as I look then I say.”
