Jack Tueller is a 90-year-old WWII veteran. In this incredibly poignant video, Tueller recounts a rainy 1944 night when he played a song on his trumpet for an enemy soldier. Little did he know, it may have saved his life.

Lest any of you forget, that is the face of a true American hero—a member of our Greatest Generation. Please cherish him, and every one of his courageous colleagues, while you still have the chance to do so.
