The United States Marine Corps is one of the toughest portions of the American military.
Memorial Day may be finished, but the US Marine Corps decided to honor our fallen soldiers with an extremely thoughtful tribute video.
The video was posted on May 26 and was posted to the US Marine Corps official Facebook page.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The beautifully shot video shows six body bearers, “carrying the coffin of one of their fellow marines, draped in an American flag,” The Daily Caller reported.
Along with the video, the U.S. Marine Corps left a caption on the video that read: “Memorial Day weekend is for the fallen, and anyone who has ever heard these words.”
The video, produced by The Body Bearers of Marine Barracks Washington, takes the viewer through the emotional procession, during which the body bearers touch their hearts several times. The last body bearer held the folded flag close to his heart, almost as if he was embracing his comrade one last time.
The video ends with these words, “On behalf of the President of the United States, the United States Marine Corps and a grateful nation please accept this flag as a symbol of our appreciation for your loved one’s honorable and faithful service.”

This is amazing. No matter what, Americans must always remember to respect our fallen soldiers and to pay tribute to them for the brave sacrifices that they made to guarantee our freedom.
