Vice President Joe Biden brought his A-game to a meet and greet with Lucy Coffey, the oldest living female U.S. veteran at 108 years old.

While Biden was charming Coffey, who served in the Women’s Army Corps in World War II, President Barack Obama stepped in to introduce himself and to offer her a presidential command coin.

“You know what this reminds me of?" Biden asked Coffey after the president left the room. "It reminds me of every time I had a good-looking date, there’d be some better-looking guy, coming along. You know what I mean? I’m vice president, the president comes in and everybody drops everything. You know what I mean? But I’m the guy that loves ya.”

Biden also offered Coffey a vice presidential command coin, and a stuffed animal replica of his German Shepherd, Champ.

"You're a special lady," he told her.
