11-Year-Old Boy Held Salute For One Hour On This Beach For The 70th Anniversary Of D-Day

There won’t be a dry eye in the house after watching this incredible video, I promise – the tears certainly welled up in my eyes!

This father took his 11 year old son to the D-Day beaches on the Normandy coast of France in June, 2014 for the 70th anniversary of the wartime landings. The son wanted to honour the men who fought there. Firstly he spent four days in the American cemetery teaching visitors about three paratroopers buried there – then he carried out the most extraordinarily moving tribute of all. He planted his flag on the beach and began a silent salute to the fallen – the boy stood there for hours. I guarantee once the lone trumpet player joins in, you’ll be welling up with tears!
