Dunwoody, GA - He looked like an elderly driver, not sure where he should go.
It turns out he was a part of American history.
Ernest Jett had pulled his SUV off onto the side of the road, looking for help. That's when Dunwoody Sergeant Robert Parsons pulled up behind him.
"He looked a little lost," says Parsons. "Then he approached my car and saluted, while wearing that hat."
The hat said World War Veteran.
"I was shocked," Parsons tells WSB. "I was speechless."
It turns out Jett wasn't just any veteran.
"He was one of the men who landed on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day," says Parsons. "He told me how the bullets were whizzing just over his head."
Jett told Parsons he was looking for some Memorial Day ceremony, but the Sergeant knew most had already finished. So he escorted the 92 year old to Brook Run Park and the War Memorial there.
"At that point I was not going just leave," says Parsons. "I wanted to just listen to his stories and honor the man for his service."
Parsons led Jett to the park and to the memorial.
"I wanted to walk him along every path and every part of the park," says Parsons. "To introduce him to every child and adult who was there and let them know who this man is."
Jett walked to the Memorial, saluted the flags there, then recounted his war experiences to the crowd that had gathered.
"All I kept thinking was why wasn't his man the center of some event somewhere," says Parsons. "He should have been speaking at one of the events."
And while Jett remains calm and subdued during the time he spent with Parsons, he did acknowledge what the day meant.
"He told us he had never been treated like his before," says Parsons. "He said we made him feel like a King."
World War II veterans are passing away at the rate of 462 per day, taking with them the living history of that war and their sacrifice.
It's something Parsons is very aware of and, in a quiet moment, Jett spoke about.
"He said that he was getting older and that he didn't know how many more of these Memorial Days he had left."
