A father was very happy as his son got commissioned into the US military as a marine corps member. To honour his son, Lt Fisher, he gave him his very first salute.
During the ceremony, the dad commended his child on how he has been respectful to people. He added that he made his job as a parent easier, WLTX News19 reports.
He tried not to cry
Just when he was going to give Fisher the salute, the man cried as he struggled hard to hold back his tears. After coming to the salute, he shook his hand in a military fashion before they finally hugged.
They both faced the camera as he spoke about how very proud he is of the young man.
“I think we all are proud of him. He made my job as a father easy. He made me look good. And this man, this young man is going to grow to do amazing things.”
