Taylor Swift Surprises WWII Vet’s Family For Christmas!

It’s hard to imagine surviving WWII and still being able to share those stories first hand with family. That’s not all WWII Vet Cyrus Porter loves, he also is known for his love of Taylor Swift‘s music! He’s seen the superstar in concert twice during the 1989 tour and has dreams of seeing her again on the next tour! He’s even grown closer to his children and grandchildren over the special bond!

Porter didn’t have to wait long for another concert, this time one that came straight into his living room! That’s right, Swift took time December 26th to surprise Porter and his family by flying out to see them! Swift’s dad posted a video of the big surprise!

Just flew to Missouri to visit Cyrus Porter, 96 year old WW II veteran, and huge Taylor fan. What a great man. What a great day!!!!!!

Swift even performed “Shake It Off” for one of her oldest and dearest fans and took photos with everyone there!


Porter has over 50 grandkids and great grandkids! Talk about one epic gathering!!! Family member Caroline Fowler shared with E! News:

My Popo was ecstatic! He was grinning from ear to ear and even had tears in his eyes. The first thing he said to her was ‘How did you get here?’ He loved every moment. He told her how he was proud of his family, his country and Taylor Swift!

Just in case you weren’t already emotional, here’s a post that includes Swift holding a baby!! Feelz O’Clock.

Porter was diagnosed with cancer this year but is staying strong to see Swift again in concert. Prayers are with him and his family. Thank you for your service and for living life to the fullest.
