BOSTON (CBS) – Dozens of people came out Wednesday to honor a World War II veteran who recently died.
Corn enlisted in the Army at 19 years old and fought in critical battles like the invasion of Normandy. He earned a Purple Heart for his service.
“I thought it was the proper thing to do, come out to honor him and his service,” said Leonard Gaudette, a veteran from Lawrence.
“I think as our world changes and we lose our World War II vets, people more and more are becoming aware, and I think people really like to help and support and honor what this soldier did,” a woman who attended the service told WBZ.
