Foster and the rest of his six-member team from Woodgate Rural Fire Brigade are battling a fierce bushfire in Australia — and they're all over the age of 70.
"Some call us Dad's Army. We don't mind," Foster said in a Facebook post Thursday. "Let's say we are all between 70 and 74. We do this because we believe, I guess, in supporting the community," Foster told CNN on Friday.
Real heroes. Age is just a number.
