While the 408k road race benefiting the Pat Tillman Foundation was winding its way through a San Jose neighborhood, runners saw 95-year-old World War II veteran Joe Bell cheering on the event while dressed in full uniform.

The runners, in turn, showed their appreciation for Bell's long-ago service, detouring from the course to shake his hand.

The touching scene was captured by Julia Prodis Sulek of the San Jose Mercury News.
