The Dallas Police Department said it had the honor last Friday, June 5, of providing a ride-along for 97-year-old World War II hero Clifford A. Stump.

Stump partnered up with Senior Corporal Langlois, of the Southwest Patrol Division, and hit the streets to answer calls and learn about Light Detection and Ranging, or LIDAR, a precise speed-monitoring tool.

During their shift, Assistant Chief Jesse Reyes met with Stump and thanked him for his service in the 82nd Airborne Division, including combat in Normandy and the defense of Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge, CBS DFW reports.

Dallas Police said Stump expressed his appreciation for those who wear the uniform and said he was amazed by the technology and tools police officers use every day.
