Over 1,000 Attend Funeral For Marine with No Family

Crowds of people gathered Tuesday to say goodbye to an Indiana veteran after no family members stepped forward to make funeral arrangements.

Billy C. Aldridge, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, died on Oct. 14 at an Indiana nursing home. He was 80-years-old.

After no records of living family members could be found, the community decided to take things into their own hands.
