When the world came to know about Luther Younger, everyone fell in love with his story and dedication towards his wife that he has. Last month, when a report came out that the old 98-year-old veteran walks all the way up to 3 miles at a time to see his wife at a hospital every day, the news went viral. Recently, a report came out that he sometimes even runs to the hospital in the middle of the night to see her and how his wife is progressing.
Although the story might seem to be a lot devoted when you look at it from Younger’s point of view, the reporters found inconsistencies in the story. The reports have been made that he is 99 years old, but when his voter card was taken out, it says that Younger was born on August 31, 1941, which means he is 77 years old. But, younger insists that he is much older, and he insists on believing him because he doesn’t have a birth certificate.
According to the reports, there is no name mentioned as Luther Younger in their list of names. The Texas state library and archives have all the names of people born after 1903 in their state, but younger’s name isn’t mentioned which means he has shifted to this place a lot after his birth.
When the reporters contacted the relatives and family members of Younger, none of them could recall their wedding date with wife Waverlee, but they were sure it happened sometime between the 1980s. This concludes that they have been married for 35 years and not 50 years as mentioned earlier. It has been reported that he walks three miles daily to see his wife at the hospital. Although there are transportation services available, he likes to walk all the way.
