Postman Stands In The Rain To Pay Respects To A Fallen Veteran


postman in Pensacola, FL, named Glenn Corbett is touching hearts everywhere with one sweet photo taken by a woman who saw him performing a beautiful deed.

The longtime postal carrier was spotted honoring a WWII veteran as the man’s funeral procession passed him by. Corbett jumped outside of his truck and stood in the pouring rain with his hands folded to pay his respects to a man he didn’t even know.

It’s a touching act reminiscent to the time an employee from Alaska Airlines sang the National Anthem in the airport to acknowledge a veteran whose ashes would be on the flight.

Carole Chase-Draughan, the daughter of the veteran, snapped the photo of Corbett and shared it with Pensacola’s WEAR ABC 3 News simply because she was so touched.

“Whoever this wonderfully patriotic postman is, I would love to just thank him for his respect, during the steady rain on Wednesday afternoon as the funeral motorcade for my WWII Veteran father passed him. This is what Respect looks like!” she wrote as the caption.

The photo was liked more than 59,000 times and shared another 31,000 proving just how powerful it was.
