Marine Staff Sgt Tim Chambers holds salute, with a broken wrist


I was mistaken when I said Sgt Chambers has been doing this every year since 2010. He’s been going FAITHFULLY since 2002…this video is the first time he spoke to the press. His grandmother goes and has her own quite tribute to our fallen.
Semper Fi.

Rolling Thunder: A Marines vigil


You may be familiar with this Marine. He’s made the trip to Washington every Memorial Day since 2010 to hold a full salute until every biker has past in honor of his fallen brothers and sisters. More veterans have joined him in recent years. In arms.
This was the first video I saw of the Lone Marine,  and it is by far my favorite. It’s one of the best 2:30 minute tributes I’ve seen. Have a safe and happy weekend.

CORRECTION; Sgt Chambers has been doing this every year since 2002 ⚓t
