Runners extend race to thank vet

  • San Jose race runners added a couple of seconds to their race in order to appreciate a 95-year-old veteran.

    Reports suggest that the gesture gained plenty of attention after a reporter who lives close to WWII veteran Joe Bell shot the video on her smartphone when she noticed that people began saluting the veteran. 

    "They began to pile up," she said. "For a moment, I worried Joe might get knocked over." Bell mentioned later that she never got any recognition in her life before.
