In this Oct. 27, 2017 file photo, Margie McClain, a World War II Marine poses for a photo in  her home in Quincy, Ill. She worked as a journalist during the war. McClain has lived at least nine lives. The 97-year-old has been an advertising representative, a journalist, a college student, a mother and a painter, to name a few. She moves a little slower today than she used to, and she's a little more apt to cry while telling a painful war-time story, but her reflections on her near-century of life are overwhelmingly positive.
