There are the two lesbians who are celebrating a seventy-year romance. And now a septuagenarian who clocks in as one of the oldest transexuals in America to undergo survery. What makes Renee Ramsey of Philadelphia so special — besides her age? Well for one, she’s a 20-year military vet.

While Renee’s age might effect recovery time, it doesn’t have any effect on qualifying for gender reassignment surgery, relays CBS 3. Which is good news, since Renee waited until the death of her (second) wife to take the plunge.

We wish you the best, Renee!
