She asked him why he spent the whole night in the room with the stranger. The Marine simply said that it was the right thing to do. Then the Marine told the nurse he had come to the hospital to find a patient named Mr. William Grey.

Mr. Grey’s son had been killed while serving his country. The nurse was once again stunned. She looked the Marine in the eyes and said that the man lying in bed, the man he had just sat with all night was Mr. William Grey.
