Raymond "Sam" Weber shared words of wisdom with fellow vets from the American Legion and other groups today in Silver Creek.

"Whenever you got a chance to go to a church, go to a church no matter what kind of church it is, but believe in God, and that's it. I do a lot of praying," said Weber.

Weber also says he enjoys everything god hands him, adding, "you can have a beer but don't get drunk."
