WELLINGTON, Fla. — A Wellington neighborhood hosted a special ceremony to honor two brothers who recently passed away from the novel coronavirus.

The Davis brothers both heroically served in World War II.

They came from a family where 11 brothers of the 16 children in the household all served honorably in the armed services.

Neighbors wanted to do something special for them, so they hosted a community drive-by parade in the neighborhood.

Flags flew at half staff on all the residents' mailboxes.
