This is pretty awesome.
World War II vet Harold Jellicoe "Coe" Percival passed away peacefully in his sleep last month at the age of 99. His obituary read that he had "no close family who can attend his funeral." and asked "any service personnel who can attend his funeral service would be appreciated"

It went viral. HUNDREDS showed up to give him a proper farewell.
