91-year-old WWII veteran works Mountain Classic

One veteran says old age is not an excuse to stay home when good basketball games are happening in the region.

91-year-old Burl Bowen of Knott County worked the doors at the 25th Annual Mountain Classic this past week.

He says he does not look his age, so why act like it?

Bowen hopes he is able to work next year's Mountain Basketball Classic Tournament.

"I really don't want it to end. It has been tremendous. The school has done the greatest thing. They've been so nice to me," said Bowen.

Bowen is a WWII veteran who currently works at the DAV office in Knott County.
