Two World War II veterans are celebrating birthdays on the Central Coast with one turning the big 100.

Welcome Home Military Heroes organized drive-by birthday salutes for 96-year-old Howard "Scotty" Scott in Arroyo Grande and for 100-year-old Kenneth G. Hart in Cambria.

Community members first gathered at Harloe Elementary in Arroyo Grade before making their way to Scott's House around noon.

Then participants drove at least an hour north to meet at the First Baptist Church in Cambria to salute Hart outside his home.

Both veterans said they are thankful for the community members who stopped by to thank them for their service.

These were Welcome Home Military Heroes' 55th and 56th veteran vehicle salute.
