Runners Give Spontaneous Tribute To 95-Year-Old WWII Vet Who Came To Cheer

The 408K Race in San Jose is already an inspiring event. The annual 8-kilometer run benefits the Pat Tillman Foundation, which funds scholarships for military veterans. This year, runners made it all the more memorable with a spontaneous tribute to a 95-year-old World War II veteran who had come out in his full uniform to cheer them.

San Jose Mercury News reporter Julia Prodis Sulek captured the stirring salute Sunday as runners shook the hand of Joe Bell, and thanked him for his service.

Pretty cool. I admire how you Americans treat your vets. By way of reminder, it is the 70th anniversary of D-Day this June. Our UK and Euro members should keep an eye out for vets and get togethers.

hmmm.. dynamic leader, great tactician, but you had some better. Did you know he cut a whole division out of an assault to go pick up his son in law, then a POW?
