I have never served in any branch of the military, to be honest I am too scared and weak to do so. I couldn’t handle it if we had to go to war and I had to fight, I also couldn’t handle the emotional/mental toll of the training involved. I have such respect for people who serve or have served our country. So stories like this, let’s just say they make me cry a little and also fill my heart with love and hope when I see how many people care about others and those who serve.
Todays feel good story of the day is about a 72-year-old veteran who was in the Air Force 1964-1968 and he passed away in Austin Texas. This mans family arranged for a funeral, then could not be reached. The Texas State Veterans Cemetery did not want this veteran to have a funeral where no one attended, so they put out a plea on Facebook. That simple plea resulted in 5,000-6,000 cars lining up to get into the cemetery to pay their respects and watch this man be laid to rest.
