Share this

A woman shared chill-inducing video of the way that a South Carolina nursing home paid their final respects to her veteran dad after he lost his battle with Alzheimer’s. As of today, the post has been viewed more than 7 million times. Laura Dern: “Richard M Campbell Veterans Nursing Home was an amazing place for my Dad’s last few years battling Alzheimer’s…. even at 5 am this morning with the few people that were available….they still honored him on his way out…. sharing this video as requested by family….. TURN UP VOLUME.”

As the stretcher makes its way through the hall, you can hear a recording of Taps being played while nursing home workers stay at attention. With all of the negative stories dividing the U.S. as a nation right now, it is wonderful to see such a beautiful show of respect for one of our nation’s veterans. Do you agree?
