Runners Stop To Salute Veteran

They were running to help fund scholarships for military veterans, and a 95 year old Vet came out to show his support.  Then things got really cool!

Joe Bell is the WWII Veteran who came out in full uniform to cheer the runners.  Julia Prodis Sulek is the reporter for the San Jose Mercury News that captured the moment.

It was a run in San Jose, California to raise money for the Pat Tillman Foundation.  Pat Tillman was the guy that walked away from a promising NFL career to fight in Afghanistan after 9/11, where he was killed.

Friends & family then started a foundation in his name, and this run supports the investment into military veterans and their spouses through educational scholarships.
