Good Samaritans carry North Carolina WWII vet to wife's grave

SHARE:


Form, WXII 12 Greensboro-Winston-Salem

Two good Samaritans helped an elderly military veteran from North Carolina pay respects to his late wife, Alma, who died in 2007.

George Boone, 96, went to visit his wife's grave at Arlington National Cemetery, but his son forgot to bring his wheel chair.

However, two volunteers stepped in and carried Boone to the grave and held him for 10 minutes.

According to Boone's son, one volunteer then insisted he carry the veteran by himself back to the car.

Boone was held as a prisoner of war after his plane was shot down during World War II.

His son said the act of kindness from the two volunteers made him proud to be an American.
