Pensioner who hid medals and absconded from care home found at D-Day celebrations in France – Telegraph

Pensioner who hid medals and absconded from care home found at D-Day celebrations in France – Telegraph.

I love this story!

This 89 year-old man, living in a care home in Sussex, asked to go to the D-Day events in Normandy.

Someone told him he could not go.

Well, this dear man, a veteran of world War II, did not like that answer.

This dear man put on his medals, covered them up with his raincoat, and took off for France!

This dear man is doing fine, and his friends will make sure he gets home safely, after he attends all of the D-Day celebrations in Normandy.
