This is just amazing.
Sgt. Dorothy “Dot” Cole who lives in Kannapolis, is listed as the oldest living marine at the age of 107 years old. Yesterday, it was announced that Dorothy voted last week with a mail-in ballot on a city tweet.
Dot’s daughter, named Beth said it was super important to her mother to get out and vote, but she is very disappointed in other parts of how politics have changed in the past century.
“She is really upset with the way that people are being so divided. It has never been so divided in history. It’s at its worst point.”
Cole enlisted in the Marines shortly after the United States entered World War II following the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
Happy 107th Birthday to Dot Cole! Sgt. Cole, of Kannapolis, is the oldest living U.S. Marine in the United States. She joined the Marines in 1943 during WW II. She completed her training at Camp Lejeune and was then stationed at Quantico primarily in an administrative role. pic.twitter.com/mHZGMPNIxO— Kannapolis, NC (@Kannapolis) September 19, 2020
