A Funeral Home Worried an Air Force Vet Wouldn’t Get a Proper Burial. Thousands of Strangers Made Sure He Did.
AUSTIN, Texas - The thousands in attendance as Joseph Walker was laid to rest Monday couldn't tell you much about him - except that he served his country. Walker, 72, was in the Air Force during the Vietnam War era and was discharged from service honorably. He "was called by Our Heavenly Father on Monday, November 19th, 2018," his obituary reads. The obituary does not say what Walker's rank was.
