A WWII vet’s body lay unclaimed at the morgue until neighbors do something heartwarming

Andrew Moore, an 89 year-old World War II veteran lived and died alone. He passed away silently all by his lonesome and it was at this moment when neighbors stepped in and gave him a heartwarming hero’s goodbye.

From NDTV:

The 89-year-old pensioner died in December with no will, no instructions and no next of kin. He lay in a cold room at the District of Columbia medical examiner’s office, where the unclaimed dead are usually destined for a nameless pauper’s grave. Instead, on Friday, Moore was given a hero’s sendoff at Arlington National Cemetery. A uniformed honor guard escorted Moore’s flag-covered remains. In place of a silent goodbye, a bugler played taps and three volleys of rifle fire marked his passing.
