Mobile, AlabamaWPMI/ CNN) – A police officer was paying attention while it was raining to honor World War II soldiers.
On Monday, a funeral procession for Senior Soldier Robert Resurring took place at Spanish Fort, Alabama. When the procession enters the graveyard, it is a mountain. Vernon police officer Newman Blazer was unaware that his commitment and respect attracted a lot of attention.
“When we passed there, he just stood with attention to it. After we got there, everyone at the Camille Center said something about it, and the man said. Did you see the cop there getting wet and standing with attention? Eddie Irby Jr., president and founder of the 92nd Buffalo Soldier Division of World War II, recalled.
Officer Blazer said he had crossed the jurisdiction with a patrol light after hearing the cell ring passing.
“He wanted to be recognized,” said the officer. “Being from a small town like Mount Vernon, he felt he could do what he did, pass by, and no one understood or respected it. It was my point that he was there and, if at the end, was passing by. “
