Two Police Officers Find 94-Year-Old World War II Vet Living Alone, What They Did Next Will Make Your Christmas


After noticing that 94-year-old World War II veteran, Herman Perry, hadn’t been around his apartment complex in a few days, neighbors decided to make a call to police.

Officers did a welfare check and found Perry fine and in perfect health, but he told them that he hadn’t had any visitors in quite some time.

Filled with the Christmas spirit, officers Abel Torres and Natalie Nuñez sprang into action …

Via Fox News Latino:

“He did mention that he hadn’t had visitors in quite some time,” Officer Nuñez told reporters. “That pulled on the heartstrings a little bit.”

After the call, the officers went to a nearby lot that sells Christmas trees and the owner agreed to give them a tree already decorated with lights to give to the veteran.

Torres and Nuñez returned to Perry’s apartment after their shift was over.

“When he walked down the hallway, it was more of a strut,” Officer Torres said. “He didn’t even need a cane.”

Perry is grateful for the gesture, telling Fox 11’s camera, “All I can say is, ‘Thank you.’”

The officers returned later that day with Christmas presents in tow, donated by fellow officers.

What a nice effort this Christmas to do something kind for a veteran.
