Claire thought that a family and close friend-only party wouldn’t cut it for veteran Frank.

“He was a great hero throughout my life,” she said. “Anyone who was a veterinarian as long as he was a veterinarian, engaged in two wars and was still in the Army during Vietnam was celebrated by another veterinarian.”

Claire logged on to the Nextdoor app and invited people to join the party.

“People are absolutely great at doing all this for strangers,” she said.

Frank joined the army shortly after graduating from high school without regrets.

“I enjoyed it every minute … even the scary part. I’m grateful for what I did, and I was born to do,” Frank said.

Frank said he was overwhelmed by the turnout and was grateful.

“I have the best part of life that life has to offer,” he said.
