With His Dying Breath, A Marine Stands and Solutes!

Published October 6, 2020 by tindertender

“Weeks before my son died, we were still hopeful that he would recover from his second brain surgery and regain some quality of life. He wanted to live. He fought so valiantly. As a mother, I could not be prouder of my son.

So…go ahead…take a knee.

Btw….just a little bit of information about this picture. This is physical therapy working with my son. She asked him to sit on the side of the bed. Michael…on his own, chose to STAND ….with whatever power he could muster, AND SALUTE.

My dad…who was helping his only grandson during physical therapy and saw what Michael was doing…asked for a picture to be taken. (So glad he did….and if anyone knows my dad…he is not a real fan of pictures, but he felt this was THAT IMPORTANT. )

This is a picture of a UNITED STATES MARINE showing respect with the last bit of energy he had in this earthly life. But you entitled fools go ahead and kneel.”
