Our veterans who sacrificed their time with their families, put their lives in order to protect the country, deserve all the respect honour from us.

However, it’s a sad fact that many veterans are not showed this respect and they’re eventuallu forgotten when they get old, left alone after serving so many years and sacrificing their well being for the country.

Then there are those with surviving relatives who simply do not want to claim them.

But if anyone deserves a dignified funeral, it’s these heroic men and women who risked their lives to serve our country.

That’s why stories like this one don’t just make me smile … they set an example for all to follow.

Once every quarter, the Florida National Cemetery holds a service for indigent and unclaimed veterans, but cemetery officials said they are welcoming services for individuals as well.

Robert Krause served as a Marine in the 1950s. When he died, there were no family and no one to claim him.

”I’ve heard it said that a veteran dies twice: once on the battlefield and the second time when people stop saying his name,” said Nick Morales, a veteran of both the Marine Corps and U.S. Army.

”If there’s anything we can do to prevent the latter, so be it.”
