COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Despite treacherous driving conditions across Colorado on Friday due to snow, hundreds of people turned out to honor a veteran being laid to rest.

No family members were able to attend Staff Sgt. Clyde Baldwin's service and a number of veteran groups were hoping members of the public would show up to give the man who served our country for 20 years a proper burial. People from all over Colorado made the trip to Pikes Peak National Cemetery.

The people who attended may not have known Staff Sgt. Clyde Baldwin personally, but they wanted to honor the man who served in the United States Air Force from 1950 to 1970.
