Just a few seconds of watching this video of a decorated World War II veteran — a man struggling to stand tall at attention on his front porch when surprise visitors show up — and you’ll see why millions of people have been touched by these special moments.

Some 70 years ago, Ernest Thompson served aboard the USS Missouri, “Mighty Mo,” an Iowa-class battleship that saw plenty of action during three wars and now stands as a silent sentinel overlooking Pearl Harbor.

Recently, Thompson, now in his 90s, had what he described as “one of the best days of his life” when U.S. Navy chief selects showed up in front of his California home to honor him.

According to a report by KTLA News, Thompson’s grandson, who is also in charge of the Battleship Iowa Museum — the Iowa was Mighty Mo’s sister ship — “recalled in a Facebook comment under the viral video that Thompson regularly visited the USS Iowa…located approximately 15 minutes from the veteran’s house.

Due to health reasons, however, Thompson…has been unable to visit the ship.”

Thompson is said to have suffered a serious fall earlier this year, which left the veteran unable to stand…until the chief selects from the nearby Fleet Anti-Submarine Warfare Training Center visited his modest home in Gardena and sang “Anchors Aweigh” in the middle of his residential street.

Then, Ernest Thompson not only stood up, but he also held a salute as he was honored by the men and women from the training center.

By clicking on the video below, you can share in the unforgettable moments when this proud vet had “one of the best days” of his long life.

According to a news release from the Battleship Iowa Museum in San Pedro, California, Thompson was serving aboard the USS Tennessee when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, and he later witnessed Japan surrender in a ceremony on the USS Missouri.

We’re happy to help celebrate the life of Ernest Thompson as well as the special honor bestowed by the Fleet Anti-Submarine Warfare Training Center.
