Marine Corps veterans Samuel Jackson and Richard Dunn never met, but one Marine uniform will connect them forever.

On Tuesday, Dunn donated his uniform so that Jackson — who died as a result of a hit-and-run on Sunday — could be buried in it with honor, according to the Conshohocken VFW Post 1074 commander, Walt Hartnett.
