boy holds salute

He’s only eleven years old, but already has touched millions with his heart of honor and respect for those you fought and died for their country.

During and official D-Day celebration, this boy took his American flag down to Omaha Beach and began to salute while holding his flag in the sand. Staring out into the ocean, he imagined all the soldiers bravely fighting and losing their lives for freedom.

As he stood alone, he began to draw the attention of others until eventually a lone trumpeter joined him making the scene all the more real and moving.

After over an hour though his knees began to buckle and his hands began to cramp he stayed strong until the moment came when he raised his right hand to signal he was ready to say goodbye. What in incredibly touching tribute!
