Hundreds attend Soldier's funeral

November 11 was Veteran's day and the DIT to which we are linking would have been great for that event.

But, alas, we didn't discover this touching brief video until after Veteran's Day is over.

And, rather than waiting till next year, we think this is something you will want to see now.

What is it?

Well, it seems that a WWII Veteran died recently and according to the information provided on the website with the video of his funeral:

"Harold Jellicoe Percival, a WWII bomber pilot, died last month at 99 years old. He had no children, no living family and no friends to come to his funeral.  But thanks to the power of the Internet, hundreds showed up to pay their respects to Percival at his funeral."

You will definitely want to see this.
