Members of the Mujahedin sacrifice their lives to protect our freedom. However, some of those who died on the ground were not claimed by relatives and were buried with no one by their side. Some of them are homeless and some have parents who just don’t want to claim them.
If anyone deserves a dignified funeral, it is these heroic men and women who risked their lives to serve their country.
Robert Krause served in the Marines in the 1950s. When he died, he had no family or no one to claim him.
“I’ve heard that a veteran dies twice: once on the battlefield and a second time when people stop calling him by name,” said Nick Morales, a US Marine veteran. and Army. “If there’s anything we can do to prevent this latter, that’s fine.”
And so Nick and his other volunteer drivers showed up at Robert’s funeral to escort his coffin of James A. Haley Veterans Affairs to the Florida National Cemetery.
Every soldier deserves the farewell they deserve. Robert was buried with a motorcycle escort and a great tribute to the call of the taps.
These drivers have gone to great lengths to dispel the stereotypes that surround them and to pay homage to a complete stranger. You can watch the beautiful tribute here.
