Watch the video. Here's the story:
In June 2014, an 11-year-old boy visited Normandy, France for the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion. During the official D-Day celebration, 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 soldiers who 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 in salute. Standing alone, holding the American flag, this little boy stood firm and held his salute for over an hour and a half.
While he continued this vigil, interested tourists, children, veterans, well-wishers and all sorts of people went down to see if the story was true, that on the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion, there stood a boy and an American flag.
Watch this video of this proud American boy memorializing and honoring our fallen soldiers and wait for the five-minute mark to see who joined this little boy’s silent watch.
