92-Year-Old Marine Gets His Wish To Be Niece’s ‘Something Blue’ On Her Wedding Day

When Alison Ferrell told her Uncle Bill that she was getting married earlier this month, his only wish was to be able to attend.

During World War II, Ferrell says the 92-year-old was a sergeant in the United States Marine Corps who served in combat on Naha in Okinawa. Recently, his health hasn't been so great and he's been dealing with pneumonia and rehabilitation. When a nurse asked him what his goal was, he replied from his hospital bed, "To be her 'Something Blue' on her wedding day." On May 13, he met that goal.

"There wasn't a dry eye in the church when he was escorted down the aisle in his dress blues," Ferrell wrote.
