On the afternoon of Jan. 13, 2023, Charles A. Conners, commander of Allen "Pop" Reeves American Legion Post 123, and Larry Wade, Department of the Philippines second vice commander/Post 123 adjutant, brought a birthday cake and paid a visit to the oldest member in Post 123, Alfredo B. Jimenea. Alfredo’s nickname is Rudy, and he turned 100 on Jan. 12. Born in the year 1923, Rudy, a retired major in the Philippine Air Force, was sharp as a tack. Conners and Wade thoroughly enjoyed their visit with Rudy. Conners asked Rudy for one of his secrets for such a long life. Rudy replied that he has been blessed by God and never expected to live this long, and then added he also drinks a bottle of Red Horse beer before he goes to bed every night, so he can get a good night's sleep of eight hours.
