Default 84 year-old WW2 vet fights off two attackers.

Not with firearms, but with grit. This guy motivates me!

Those two are lucky they could run away or that old man would have probably killed them. Can you imagine what they are in for in jail, "Oh, you are the two who got their asses kicked by an 84 year old man!"

I wish he would have been able to get a few more good licks in on them but good for him. I hope they catch the scum suckers.

They caught them. Saw the story on the news. Old guy still has some fight in him. South Proctor isn't really the place to just pull over and offer to help someone though. He is lucky. Big time gang neighborhood there...

Glad he is okay.

I hate people who don't know how to respect their elders

That's a great story and will be even funnier for those guys in jail.

Odd that I didn't see this on the local news as it's two hours from where I live.

I'm glad he managed get out of it with just a bruise, but there was a lot of luck involved. I mean, if those guys had been just a bit more determined it could have ended badly.
