This video would have been perfect for Memorial Day, but I hadn’t seen it then, and I’ll be doggoned if I’m going to wait another 11 months to show you this gem.
A solitary Marine holds vigil at full attention for hours, during the 2010 Rolling Thunder motorcycle rally in tribute to fallen comrades.
Grab some kleenex:
My question is why is there only ONE person from the military there? Barry Sotoreo dislikes our military women and men. He has no respect or love for America.
Sgt Chambers explained himself in the comments:
This was a wild hair thing to do on my own accord, Why do people instantly think “why” like your question about more military out there. To begin with Rolling Thunder is a demonstration ride, so to have active duty supporting it in uniform is not going to happen. My salute was never for Rolling Thunder, it is to honor all the sacrifices America has made, along with demonstrate compassion and be a direct reflection of the heart and love Service Members have for humanity……..
SSgt Tim Chambers posted this video of a speech in Little Rock Arkansas about why he did the salute.
I gave this speech prior to the Memorial Day before last on my way across country where I honored families that lost their loved ones and Vets, along with concerned citizens and conducted name readings………. Sorry not the best quality but i do have it bright as day on my computer just need to figure out how to edit it.
One thing I may run out of is ammo – but not hugs.
This soldier stands tall.
Hat tip: Geeeeez! (Love that name)!
