High school seniors carry the casket of Air Force veteran with no family

All veterans deserve a good funeral when the time comes. If you give your life to serving your country, you should get a respectful and dignified send-off.

Sadly, not every vet has family or friends at the time of death, but that doesn’t mean they have to be buried alone. When one air force vet died, a group of kind high school seniors stepped up to carry his casket.Ralph Lambert, a retired US Air Force veteran, died in Louisiana on February 8 at the age of 94, reported KALB. Sadly, he had no friends or family who could attend his funeral.

Lambert served his country for over twenty years, from 1950 to 1971, and it seemed heartbreaking to think the vet would be buried with no one around to honor him.

But when a local high school baseball coach named Jordan Marks heard about the veteran’s situation, he stepped in to help. He recruited six members of his team, all seniors at Menard High School, to attend the funeral and carry Lambert’s casket.For this coach, it was not only a way to honor a vet, but teach his students some valuable life lessons off the field.

“I try to teach them the game of baseball but also the game of life, and anytime we can serve a community member or especially somebody that served for our country, we are more than happy to do it,” Marks told KALB.
