Father of Dead Greek Evzone Proudly Joins Parade in Athens (video)

The father of the 24-year-old soldier joins the Presidential Guard parade on Sunday

The distraught father of the soldier belonging to Greece’s Presidential Guard who died in Athens last week marched in a parade dedicated to his memory on Sunday.
Christos Thomas, father of 24-year-old Evzone soldier Spiros Thomas, braved the cold to honor his son, who died suddenly last Thursday at the Guard’s barracks in central Athens.
At the end of the parade, the Evzones shouted the word “immortal!” and later held one minute of silence for their former colleague.
The causes of Patras native Spiros Thomas’ death are still unknown, and an investigation is now underway in order to clarify the reasons for his collapse.
