In a truly beautiful moment, a group of Marines surprised World War II veteran Captain Robert Woodbury with a very special gift.
Woodbury was surprised to see the Marines arrive at his home in Fort Lauderdale, Fla who arrived without notice. The Marines then presented Woodbury with a brand new American flag to replace his old and faded flag which he proudly flies outside his home.
The new flag had just flown on the U.S.S. New York earlier that day. Woodbury, 93, couldn’t contain his joy at the gesture saying:
“I’m really red white and blue. I’m so pro-American,” he said. “I’m a Marine… Ooo-Rah.”
What a truly magical moment. Our Veterans deserve the very best and to see these young marines doing this, it brings tears to our eyes.
