    Marines and strangers aid WW II veteran

    It's always heartwarming to see folks step up and help their neighbors. Bless everyone who jumped in to help.

    "HOUSTON (KTRK) -- There's a good news update on a home ransacked and spray painted by a pair of teen burglars in northwest Houston. While the burglars are now in custody, community members and Marines stepped in to help the homeowner -- a 93-year-old World War II veteran.

    "It's important that he knows we're here for him and that we're always his brothers," Major Roberto Rodriguez said."

    "...The Wood family says it's still trying to comprehend all the support shown their father, who also just lost his wife last month. For today, it's obvious the presence of fellow Marines brought a smile to his face, as he coaxed the younger Marines into an impromptu singing of the Marine Corps hymn.

    Some contractors and builders also stopped by to assess the situation. They will return to complete the cleanup and repairs."

    "Life is life's greatest gift. Guard the life of another creature as you would your own because it is your own. On life's scale of values, the smallest is no less precious to the creature who owns it than the largest..." Lloyd Biggle, Jr.

    This made me smile! I always love to hear that the elderly are not forgotten...bet this veteran got a kick out of having the Marines sing...
