You might need a tissue for this one… Young boy shows his respect for the men and women who serve our country in the most inspiring way imaginable. Hallelujah!
Reported by allthatsnews,
An 11-year-old boy wanted to show his respect for our military. He did so by holding a salute for 90 minutes.
His inspiring story gets better.
According to AWM,
For the 70th anniversary of D-Day, the boy in the video and his father went to France to honor those who fought for freedom against Hitler and the Nazis in World War II. But this boy didn’t just want to visit the place that was the site of one of the deadliest battles in the history of war, this boy wanted to honor the honorable fallen soldiers who fought their way up every inch of the Omaha Beach in Normandy, France.
The boy wore a uniform and took an American flag out and then stood on the coast as the water came in and out and saluted the memory of those brave men. But this 11-year-old boy went above and beyond his duty as an American citizen. Not only did he salute the honorable men who fought and died on Omaha Beach, he also spent four days in the American Cemetery where he taught visitors about three paratroopers who were buried there.
Thank you to the brave men and woman who serve our Country everyday!
