Every day, almost 500 WWII veterans pass away. While many actively seek to capture the stories of these men who sacrificed everything in one of the most significant events in modern history before they’re gone for good, it’s unlikely any of us will ever truly know just what it was like for them. Hopefully, no one ever will. For any romance associated with these heroes, the world does not need another global war. We’ve got enough as it is and could certainly do with less.
But it’s still important to recognize these brave souls and their service to their country and the planet. The way these runners go out of their way is both touching and symbolic of how important these veterans still are to us all.
