Another great story of a veteran recognition and burial

+5 votes

Love reading these, encouraging to be reminded there are more great volunteers out there to help us recognize and help our dear veterans!

A Vietnam veteran was going to be buried alone, then a stranger helped find his family:

Awesome story. Thanks for sharing Russ!

Also there are many veterans organizations that would support these funerals of veterans without families such as the VFW, Vietnam Veterans of America, the American Legion. I am proud to be a part of the Vietnam Veterans of America. Memorial Day is coming up too. Hopefully this man's name will be mentioned locally during their ceremony.
