    Three men were helping 89-year-old Rose Griest get into her car after a restroom break.

    Carnegie, an officer with the Levy County Sheriff’s Office, told Yahoo! she recognized the men “from the neighborhood, and (she) wanted them to have that moment to show who they really are.”

    She identified them as Joc Koe Stoe, Marty and Freddy G. 

    In the video, Griest’s husband, 100-year-old Army veteran David Griest, can be heard saying, “Thank you so much fellas. I’m 100 years old.”
