NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) — Marine and Vietnam Veteran Sgt. Leo Stokely passed away with no known family. His funeral was to be for an unclaimed veteran. Friday, a crowd saw just how powerful our country’s respect for those who served can be. The crowd just kept growing Friday as people made their way up the hill at Middle Tennessee Veterans Cemetery. No one could appreciate them all being there more than the women sitting on the front row of the site’s chapel. Tea Gray, Cay Cross and Samantha Anderson all worked as that veteran’s caregivers.
