Soldier salutes passing funeral procession in pouring rain

Soldier salutes passing funeral procession in pouring rain”

While it's proper protocol to yield to allow a funeral procession to pass, Erin Hester explained to Fox News that lately, she's noticed people in her town of Vine Grove, Kentucky, hadn't been pulling over, which is a source of frustration for her.

The soldier was captured in a photo last Thursday in Vine Grove. A funeral procession was passing by and this soldier got out of his jeep to stand at attention in the pouring rain.

"As soon as he got out of the vehicle, it made me tear up", driver Erin Hester of Vine Grove told Fox News.

"We had come to a red light when the intersection was blocked by our local police department", Hester told CNN.

Hester chose to make the post public on her Facebook profile, something she told CNN she never does.

The photo, which shows the soldier saluting a hearse in a downpour, has been liked more than 179,000 times and shared more than 125,000 times.

Stopping a auto during a procession or abstaining from passing is not only considered a sign of respect - it's also the law in Kentucky.

However, on July 6, she noticed something that restored her faith in people's respect for the dead and those who are mourning. I feel pretty confident that there isn't a military rule that soldiers have to do this.
