They came to his funeral

Former Marine Billy Aldrigde was living in an Indianapolis nursing home when he passed away last month at age 80. He had no known living relatives. Despite this, his funeral was publicly advertised, and more than a thousand people came to pay their last respects to the unclaimed veteran. What a heartwarming story, proof that the American spirit truly does live on.
