Carole Chase-Draughan, the daughter of the WWII veteran who the funeral was for, snapped the photo as they passed by.
Carole shared the touching moment on a local news Facebook page saying, “Whoever this wonderfully patriotic postman is, I would love to just thank him for his respect, during the steady rain on Wednesday afternoon as the funeral motorcade for my WWII Veteran father passed him. This is what Respect looks like!”
The post was shared more than 25,000 times which helped identify Glenn Corbett as the USPS letter carrier in the photo.
Carole thanked him in a comment: “Thank you Glenn Corbett, from the bottom of my heart…The respect you displayed at my Daddy’s funeral procession truly touched my heart.”
Another Facebook user wrote, “It’s the south. We pull over out of respect. Respect for grieving loved ones. Respect for the deceased. Respect for the injured and ill. Respect for firemen, policeman, and first responders. ALWAYS pull over for funerals, law enforcement, fire trucks, and ambulances. Awesome show of respect Mr. Postman. Thank you!”
