American Boy Holds Salute Over an Hour to Honor Fallen Soldiers

When we were thinking of what to post on this Memorial Day, an amazing story came across our Facebook news feed. After watching this video, our mind was made up. This would be our Memorial Day 2015 post.

We hope each of you will take the time to watch this heartfelt video of a proud American boy memorializing and honoring our fallen soldiers. You will be glad you did. And when you are finished watching, please make sure to share this blog post with your friends.

Here's a brief backstory for this amazing video.

"During the official D-Day celebration, local police didn’t allow the boy to enter the cemetery in his WWII-style uniform. So the boy took his American flag down to Omaha Beach and planted it in the sand. Staring out at the ocean, the little boy wanted to thank all the Americans who died 70 years earlier in the fight against fascism and evil.

As the young boy struggled to hold the flag steady in the forceful wind, he suddenly witnessed a vision of American infantry soldiers heading bravely towards their fate on the morning of June 6, 1944. Gazing across the English Channel, and so moved by this vision, he brought up his hand to salute the past.

Standing alone, holding the American flag, this little boy stood firm and held his salute for over an hour and a half."

To whom it may concern their is an amazing young man named Cody who has a Facebook page operation99 that on hos own he sends care packages to military personnel also goes around shaking hands and thanking any veteran and active soldiers he meets. I have never met the young patriot but am amazed how he has done this for the love of soldiers
