An 11-Year-Old Boy Thanked Fallen Soldiers and His Actions Will Melt Your Heart

An 11-Year-Old Boy Held His Memorial Salute for Over an Hour.

An 11-year-old boy visited Normandy, France during the 70th anniversary of the D-Day Invasion to honor past and present soldiers. He wore a WWII-style uniform during the official D-Day celebration but local police didn’t let the young boy enter the cemetery for fallen American soldiers.

Undeterred, he walked to Omaha beach and planted his American flag into the sand and stared out into the ocean while saluting past soldiers. People started to gather to view a boy holding an American flag but even when he stood alone, he held his salute except for wiping the tears from his eyes.
