Runners thank Veteran during race

Posted: Updated:

SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA (WKOW) -- World War II Veteran Joe Bell stood in his front yard - in full uniform- last weekend and cheered on runners. There were racing for a Foundation for fallen Army Ranger Pat Tillman.

The 95-year-old Vet clapped for them as they passed by and the runners clapped back. Eventually the runners started running onto the sidewalk to shake his hand and thank him for his service.

Bell is well know in the community and the video of the touching moment has now gone viral.
