A Gesture Of Thanks In A Crowded Train Station Erupts In Applause For WWII Veteran

This will make you feel good. This 99 year old WWII veteran was just waiting in line for his train. One of the railroad workers saw him and the hat he was wearing indicating that he was a Navy WWII veteran and this video shows what he did.

The Veterans Site wishes to honor and thank this WWII Navy veteran for his service to the nation in WWII and for his service to his family and to our society over the course of his long life.

We would also like to thank that railroad worker for making it a public point to honor an old veteran. That was an example of honor, respect and good old American patriotism.
