NEW PORT RICHEY, Fl. – A man from New Port Richey, Florida was shocked when he saw this hearse parked outside of a donut shop. Not because it was a hearse, but because of who was inside, a veteran.

The body of Army veteran, Lieutenant Colonel Jesse Coleman, was on the way to Lecanto, for a service, when a driver and a funeral director decided to make a stop.

It’s that stop that cost them their jobs.

Jim Rudolph/President, Veterans Funeral Care saw the photo and said, “that’s absolutely terrible. It’s not what we do. That’s absolutely a total lack of respect.”
