Hundreds of Strangers Attend Homeless Veterans Funeral

Veteran funeralHundreds of strangers attended a homeless U.S. veteran’s funeral in Wyoming. Stephen Reiman died in a Wyoming hospital, suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, after traveling from California with few possessions. Nobody visited Reiman in the hospital, but the coroner hoped that people from the community would attend his funeral to mark his passing. The funeral was a momentous occasion to bring awareness for homeless veterans.
