It`s a rare moment when you see the true meaning beneath the surface of one`s actions. This was one of those moments. He wasn’t raising the flag because he had to, or someone told him to do it. He was raising the flag because he was proud. He wanted to raise that flag. That flag holds meaning to him. He defended it. He fought for it. And now he raises that flag every morning out of love for his country.
To Mr. Eley and the brave Veterans like him. Thank you.
