LOS ANGELES (CIRCA) β€” Hundreds of veterans and supporters went to the funeral of World War II veteran James McCue on Thursday after learning that he had no surviving family. McCue died at 97 in a health center in Massachusetts.

McCue enlisted in the Army in 1943. Massachusetts Secretary of Veterans' Services Francisco Urena says McCue landed in Normandy on D-Day in 1944.

Urena brought attention to McCue's funeral on Twitter.

The group of people that came to the funeral included many veterans organizations. There was only one person in attendance who knew McCue personally, and that was Doris Sevigny, a lady who lived below him in an apartment complex for nearly 20 years.
