Rolling Thunder and a Marine’s Salute

3000 vets on motorcycles from across the USA paraded in D.C. the Sunday
before Memorial Day, while a solitary, saluting Marine greeted them out on
Constitution Avenue… the Marine stood at salute for 3 straight hours, while
the parade of roaring bikes kept on coming…. it is held in remembrance
of those who’ve fallen in the military…. the event (or the group) is
called Rolling Thunder… the camera is on the Marine a lot… watch his
struggles with his emotions, and his struggles with holding that salute…
the way he salutes is very touching… his head lowered, his eyes down,
in reverence for the fallen… it got to be overwhelming for him…
and the tears started flowing… but keeps right on holding that salute…
