This Soldier Wore the Ugliest Dress He Could Find to a Funeral For an Incredible Reason

Right before he was shipped out for a tour of duty in Afghanistan, British soldier Kevin Elliot made a pact with his best friend Barry Delaney. Elliot told him that if anything were to happen to him over there, if he were to be killed in action, he wants Delaney to find the ugliest dress he could find and wear it to his funeral. It was strange, but Delaney promised.


While Elliot was in Afghanistan, he and Delaney stayed in close contact, but three years later, Delaney received the unfortunate news that his best friend had been killed.

Delaney kept good on his promise. He poured himself Elliot's favorite drink, toasted his fallen friend and hero, and donned the most ridiculous dress he could find — a greenish-yellow dress with neon pink high socks.

To most people, Delaney would look like a disrespectful fool showing up at a soldier's funeral in that ridiculous dress, but those in attendance knew of the promise Delaney made to Elliot and were touched by keeping his word to his friend.

Elliot gave his life for his country and Delaney gave up some of his dignity for his best friend.

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested
    to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My
    apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this
    is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my
    own weblog and was curious what all is required to get setup?

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

    Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see
    if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is
    now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had
    to share it with someone!

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally,
    it seems as though you relied on the video to make your
    point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw
    away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  • comment-avatar

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored
    myself or outsourced but it appears a lot
    of it is popping it up all over the web without my
    permission. Do you know any solutions to help reduce content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate
    it.

    Customizeded instruction has some elements alike along with mastery
    knowing, although that ignores team tasks in favor of making it possible for much more competent or even extra inspired trainees to progress
    in advance of others while making best use of educator communication with those students which require the best support.
